Enumerators are an efficient, predictable, and safe alternative to lazy I/O.
Discovered by Oleg Kiselyov, they allow large datasets to be processed
in near-constant space by pure code. Although somewhat more complex to write,
using enumerators instead of lazy I/O produces more correct programs.

This library contains an enumerator implementation for Haskell, designed to
be both simple and efficient. Three core types are defined, along with
numerous helper functions:

* /Iteratee/: Data sinks, analogous to left folds. Iteratees consume
a sequence of /input/ values, and generate a single /output/ value.
Many iteratees are designed to perform side effects (such as printing to
stdout), so they can also be used as monad transformers.

* /Enumerator/: Data sources, which generate input sequences. Typical
enumerators read from a file handle, socket, random number generator, or
other external stream. To operate, enumerators are passed an iteratee, and
provide that iteratee with input until either the iteratee has completed its
computation, or EOF.

* /Enumeratee/: Data transformers, which operate as both enumerators and
iteratees. Enumeratees read from an /outer/ enumerator, and provide the
transformed data to an /inner/ iteratee.
