Consistent Overhead Byte Stuffing (COBS) for Python

This is the Mercurial source code repository for Consistent Overhead Byte Stuffing (COBS) encoding and decoding, implemented in Python.

Downloads are provided on the Python Package Index PyPI COBS page.

COBS module documentation is here.

COBS/R

I've invented a variant of COBS, "Consistent Overhead Byte Stuffing—Reduced" (COBS/R).

C Implementation

A C implementation is available from the same author. It is closely-related to the code in the C extensions for this Python module.
