Various small helper functions for Lists, Maybes, Tuples, Functions. Some of these functions are improved implementations of standard functions. They have the same name as their standard counterparts. Others are equivalent to functions from the base package, but if you import them from this utility package then you can write code that runs on older GHC versions or other compilers like Hugs and JHC. All modules are plain Haskell 98. The package depends exclusively on the @base@ package and only that portions of base that are simple to port. Thus you do not risk a dependency avalanche by importing it. However, further splitting the base package might invalidate this statement.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
Problem reports, updates or suggestions for this package should be reported with send-pr.
