Rapture I/O is a fledgling library for Scala which provides a consistent, intuitive and extensible API for handling common I/O operations, such as sending HTTP requests and streaming data between files, URLs and sockets.

Rapture I/O offers the functionality of java.io, but unifies its features into simpler, more coherent and higher-level concepts, allowing tasks which once took several lines of code to be often accomplished in just one, taking full advantage of Scala's rich syntax.
