The typesafe-endian package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides newtype wrappers for separating data with specified endianness from other data of the same type with normal, system-specific endianness. Since these wrappers are newtypes, no runtime overhead is incurred. Currently the underlying EndianSensitive typeclass its instances are taken directly from the data-endian package. However, if Haskell or GHC ever gets a built-in equivalent, like as is proposed in, it should be trivial to update this to use that instead.
