typesafe-endian: Enforce endianness with types

[ bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides newtype wrappers for separating data with specified endianness from other data of the same type with normal, system-specific endianness. Since these wrappers are newtypes, no runtime overhead is incurred. Currently the underlying EndianSensitive typeclass its instances are taken directly from the 'data-endian' package. However, if Haskell or GHC ever gets a built-in equivalent, like as is proposed in 'http://ghc.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/7902', it should be trivial to update this to use that instead.
