z85

z85 is a binary string codec, like hexadecimal or base64, but has a higher density of compression than the former, due to its use of a higher base value of 85 than base 64. ByteStrings just need to be a length of a multiple of 4 (a Word32String might be a better name).

There are multiple layers of exposed implementation in this package

  • Word32 <-> Vector 4 Z85Char for low level work
  • Attoparsec Parser ByteString <-> Parser Text for slightly higher level parsing of strict data
  • Pipes Pipe ByteString Text <-> Pipe Text ByteString for encoding / decoding streams of strict data
  • Casual Lazy.ByteString ~ Lazy.Text functions for encoding / decoding lazy data.
