TinyEndian

Introduction

TinyEndian is a minimal endianness library for the D programming language. It has no external dependencies, it only needs a D compiler and Phobos (standard library). TinyEndian doesn't allocate memory and is fully @nogc to allow use in high-performance code.

The API is not stable and may change in the future.

Features

  • Swap byte order of 2- or 4-byte elements in an array in place.
  • Read a UTF-8, UTF-16 or UTF-32 buffer, determine its endianness using a UTF byte-order-mark and convert it to system endianness in place.
  • No external dependencies.
  • pure, nothrow and @nogc.

Usage

Assuming you use dub, add this line:

"tinyendian": { "version" : "~>0.2.0" }

to the "dependencies" in your project's dub.json.

If you don't use dub, you can directly copy the source/tinyendian.d file into your project.

TinyEndian requires DMD 2.067 or better.
