Haskell library for binary serialisation; hugs library

This package provides a library for Hugs, an interpreter for the Haskell programming language.

Binary serialisation of Haskell values to and from lazy ByteStrings. The Binary library provides methods for encoding Haskell values as streams of bytes directly in memory. The resulting ByteString can then be written to disk, sent over the network, or futher processed (for example, compressed with gzip).

Package version:0.4.1-3


  binary: efficient, pure binary serialisation using lazy ByteStrings

The 'binary' package provides Data.Binary, containing the Binary class,
and associated methods, for serialising values to and from lazy

A key feature of 'binary' is that the interface is both pure, and efficient.

The 'binary' package is po

    reading structures from the end of a stream, seek/tell behaviour

seek based protocols are too hard.
