Support for bytestring based filepath manipulation, similar to 'filepath'.

This package is part of the HPath suite, also check out:


This is basically a fork of posix-paths, which seemed to have stalled development.

There is also a similar library filepath-bytestring, but it doesn't follow an open development model and is cross-platform, which this library is not interested in.

Differences to 'posix-paths'

  • uses the word8 package for save word8 literals instead of OverloadedStrings
  • hasTrailingPathSeparator and dropTrailingPathSeparator behave in the same way as their System.FilePath counterpart
  • has some additional functions

Differences to 'filepath-bytestring'

  • uses the word8 package for save word8 literals instead of OverloadedStrings
  • is not cross-platform (less odd code to maintain)
  • has some additional functions
