# Fast base16 support

This package provides a Haskell library for working with base16-encoded
data quickly and efficiently, using the ByteString type.


# Performance

This library is written in pure Haskell, and it's fast:

* 250 MB/sec encoding

* 200 MB/sec strict decoding (per RFC 4648)

* 100 MB/sec lenient decoding


# Get involved!

Please report bugs via the
[github issue tracker](http://github.com/bos/base16-bytestring).
