FileManip: expressive file manipulation
---------------------------------------

This package provides functions and combinators for searching,
matching, and manipulating files.

It provides four modules.

System.FilePath.Find lets you search a filesystem hierarchy efficiently:

  find always (extension ==? ".pl") >>= mapM_ remove

System.FilePath.GlobPattern lets you perform glob-style pattern
matching, without going through a regexp engine:

  "foo.c" ~~ "*.c"  ==> True

System.FilePath.Glob lets you do simple glob-style file name searches:

  namesMatching "*/*.c"  ==>  ["foo/bar.c"]

System.FilePath.Manip lets you rename files procedurally, edit files
in place, or save old copies as backups:

  modifyWithBackup (<.> "bak")
                   (unlines . map (takeWhile (/= ',')) . lines)
                   "myPoorFile.csv"
