Changelog for attoparsec-0.11.3.4
- New function scientific is compatible with rational, but parses integers more efficiently (https://github.com/bos/aeson/issues/198)
The new Chunk typeclass allows for some code sharing with Ed Kmett's parsers package: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/parsers
New function runScanner generalises scan to return the final state of the scanner as well as the input consumed.
New dependency: the scientific package. This allows us to parse numbers much more efficiently.
peekWord8', peekChar': new primitive parsers that allow single-character lookahead.
