The bytestring package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

An efficient compact, immutable byte string type (both strict and lazy) suitable for binary or 8-bit character data.

The ByteString type represents sequences of bytes or 8-bit characters. It is suitable for high performance use, both in terms of large data quantities, or high speed requirements. The ByteString functions follow the same style as Haskell's ordinary lists, so it is easy to convert code from using String to ByteString.

Two ByteString variants are provided:

The Char8 modules provide a character-based view of the same underlying ByteString types. This makes it convenient to handle mixed binary and 8-bit character content (which is common in many file formats and network protocols).

ByteStrings are not designed for Unicode. For Unicode strings you should use the Text type from the text package.

These modules are intended to be imported qualified, to avoid name clashes with Prelude functions, e.g.

 import qualified Data.ByteString as BS
