Haskell library for binary serialisation using lazy ByteStrings

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).

The 'Binary' package is notable in that it provides both pure, and high performance serialisation.

Values are always encoded in network order (big endian) form, and encoded data should be portable across machine endianess, word size, or compiler version. For example, data encoded using the Binary class could be written from GHC, and read back in Hugs.

Package version:


  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

seek based protocols are too hard.
