Readme for readable-0.1

[back to package description]


The Read type class is very useful for building data types from String representations. But String has high overhead, so sometimes it isn't suitable for applications where space usage and performance are important. This library provides a simpler version of Read's functionality for Text and UTF8 encoded ByteStrings.
