Readme for base16-0.1.1

[back to package description]


Build Status Hackage

Padded and unpadded base16 and base16hex encoding and decoding for Text and ByteString values.

For the companion optics and pattern synonyms, see base16-lens.


What does this library provide? Here is the summary:

  • Great encoding performance compared to existing libraries (e.g. memory, base16-bytestring)
  • Better decoding performance compared to existing libraries.
  • Support for Text encodings and decodings
  • Optics for handling more complex structures with Base16 representations via the base16-lens package
  • Checks for both valid Base16 and correct Base16 and Base16hex encodings

There are no dependencies aside from those bundled with GHC.
