Readme for streamly-bytestring-0.2.1

[back to package description]


Library for streamly and bytestring interoperation.

If you are writing code from scratch, please use Streamly.Data.Array which is a generalization of ByteString and better integrated with streamly.

This library is to enable interoperation of streamly with existing code that uses ByteString.

The package provides APIs to interconvert between strict Bytestring and streamly Array Word8 and between lazy Bytestring and stream of Array Word8.

The interconversion in the case of strict Bytestring and streamly Array Word8 has no overhead for GHC allocated memory. For foreign allocator allocated memory there is a copy involved.


This is a dumb program that counts the number of bytes in a file.

import qualified Streamly.Data.Fold as FL

import System.IO (FilePath)

strictByteStringSize :: BS.ByteString -> IO Int
strictByteStringSize bs = S.fold FL.length $ S.unfold Strict.reader bs

lazyByteStringSize :: BSL.ByteString -> IO Int
lazyByteStringSize bsl =
    S.fold (FL.foldl' (+) 0)
        $ S.mapM strictByteStringSize
        $ fmap Strict.fromArray
        $ Lazy.toChunks bsl

    bsl <- BSL.readFile path
