Readme for word24-2.0.1

Build Status Hackage

This library implements 24-bit word and int types suitable for use in vector processing.

Storable implementations are provided, however as they use a size and alignment of 3 bytes care should be taken to ensure they are compatible if used in conjunction with the FFI.

These types use unboxed data and GHC primitives, and are unlikely to be compatible with other Haskell compilers.


This library uses the Hackage/Cabal build system. You will need a working Haskell compiler and appropriate build system. This is most easily met by installing the Haskell Platform. The following command will install the library:

cabal install word24

This library is pure Haskell, and should install on any system with a suitable Haskell compiler with no extra steps required. In particular, POSIX-compatible, Mac OSX, and Windows should all be supported.
