base16-bytestring: RFC 4648-compliant Base16 encodings for ByteStrings

[ bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides support for encoding and decoding binary data according to base16 (see also RFC 4648) for strict (see Data.ByteString.Base16) and lazy ByteStrings (see Data.ByteString.Base16.Lazy).

See the base16 package which provides superior encoding and decoding performance as well as support for lazy, short, and strict variants of Text and ByteString values. Additionally, see the base-encoding package which provides an uniform API providing conversion paths between more binary and textual types.
