It's a collection of Haskell-related utilities. It is an extension of my earlier work developing MissingLib for OCaml. You can download MissingH from http://software.complete.org/missingh. There is a mirror, with a few days' lag, at http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/m/missingh.
Powerful Logging Framework for Haskell This framework provides a system of hierarchical loggers and modular handlers permitting fine-grained logging with a great deal of control and yet a simple and fast interface. It's based on log4j for Java and logging for Python.
Also included is a native-Haskell Syslog client.
Versatile modules to simplify everyday tasks:
IO utilities make it easier to work with line-based text files and binary files
IO object virtualization so you can use one set of code to work on files of many different types
Filesystem virtualization so you can access various items with the same ease as your system's filesystem
Network utilities to streamline connections
List utilities including association list tools, list splitting, truncation, and delimiter joining
String utilities including removal of leading or trailing whitespace, joining, splitting, and truncation
Other utilities for threads, parsers, filenames, etc.
Printf utilities for formatting strings
Hundreds of unit tests to verify proper functionality

The entire library has no prerequisites save the Haskell standard library and is designed to install without complexity on a variety of systems. It could also easily be embedded within your own source trees so that users need not have it installed beforehand.
** THIS IS CURRENTLY BETA-QUALITY CODE; MAJOR API FLUCTUATIONS MAY YET OCCUR.
See the file INSTALL (Linux/Unix/BSD/Posix) or INSTALL-win.txt (Windows).
You can simply use -package MissingH in most compilers to enable this library.
Hugs users will need to use -98 +o to use certain modules.
GHC users will need to use this for certain modules:
The API docs can be built with "make doc", or you can find them at:
