[Haskell-cafe] getting output from shell commands

I would like to be able to run a shell command like curl and process the 
output in my Haskell program, but I couldn't find anything helpful about it.

Something like

main = do
         args <- getArgs
         inp <- exec "curl" args
         putStrLn (processInput inp)

would be very helpful.
