The fast-tagsoup package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

Fast TagSoup parser. Speeds of 20-200MB/sec were observed.

Works only with strict bytestrings.

This library is intended to be used in conjunction with the original tagsoup package:

 import Text.HTML.TagSoup hiding (parseTags, renderTags)
 import Text.HTML.TagSoup.Fast

Besides speed fast-tagsoup correctly handles HTML <script> and <style> tags, converts tags to lower case and can decode non UTF-8 XML for you.

This parser is used in production in BazQux Reader feeds and comments crawler.
