Nimrod Standard Library

Author: Andreas Rumpf
Version: 0.9.6

"The good thing about reinventing the wheel is that you can get a round one."

Though the Nimrod Standard Library is still evolving, it is already quite usable. It is divided into pure libraries, impure libraries and wrappers.

Pure libraries do not depend on any external *.dll or lib*.so binary while impure libraries do. A wrapper is an impure library that is a very low-level interface to a C library.

Read this document for a quick overview of the API design.

The bottom of this page includes a list of 3rd party packages created by the Nimrod community. These packages are a useful addition to the modules in the standard library.
