Build Status Code Coverage

(RFC 7049) serialization format.

There exists another Python CBOR implementation (cbor) which is faster on CPython due to its C extensions. On PyPy, cbor2 and cbor are almost identical in performance. The other implementation also lacks documentation and a comprehensive test suite, does not support most standard extension tags and is known to crash (segfault) when passed a cyclic structure (say, a list containing itself).
