# 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). Master [github repository](http://github.com/bos/base16-bytestring): * `git clone git://github.com/bos/base16-bytestring.git` There's also a [Mercurial mirror](http://bitbucket.org/bos/base16-bytestring): * `hg clone http://bitbucket.org/bos/base16-bytestring` (You can create and contribute changes using either git or Mercurial.) # Authors This library is written and maintained by Bryan O'Sullivan, <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
