Thanks :)

It was written in haste for a particular purpose and then tweaked a bit,
so I would be pleasantly surprised if it didn't contain any bugs

That was about a month ago, so I don't remember exactly, but knowing me
I guess I must have looked into the source code. You can find some good,
but sometimes not haddockised, comments there.

Glynn Clements already cited some relevant code, but I think I was
rather looking at libraries/unix/System/Posix/Process.hsc which is the
one I used in my code, probably more recent.
