chunky: Human-readable storage of text/binary objects.

[ codec, deprecated, lgpl, library, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Allows serializing data into binary files, preserving human readability as far as possible. It allows mixing binary and textual data in the same file, and is a light-weight alternative to parsec & co. The generated files are not intended to be human-editable, only readable. If the stored binary data is utf8-encoded text, the whole file can be read in any text-editor.
