Readme for pgsql-simple-0.1.2

[back to package description]

Work in progress

I am currently porting the MySQL parts to PostgreSQL, hoping to maintain the rest of the API verbatim.

pgsql-simple: mid-level bindings to PostgreSQL servers

This library is a mid-level Haskell binding to PostgreSQL servers. It is aimed at speed and ease of use.


This library is BSD-licensed.


This library is written and maintained by Chris Done,

This library is also directly forked from mysql-simple, written and maintained by Bryan O'Sullivan,, with the MySQL parts changed to PostgreSQL, in order to have a consistent API.
