Text::TNetstrings Build Status

The library provides an implementation of the TNetstrings serialization format.

Usage

use Text::TNetstrings qw(:all);

my $data = encode_tnetstrings({"foo" => "bar"}) # => "12:3:foo,3:bar,}"
my $hash = decode_tnetstrings($data)            # => {"foo" => "bar"}

Performance

The benchmarks show that TNetstrings has about the same performance for XS modules as JSON, and is significantly faster than the Pure Perl JSON module.

$ perl benchmark/encode.pl
                   Rate JSON::PP TNetstrings::PP    JSON::XS TNetstrings::XS
JSON::PP         2790/s       --            -23%        -96%            -96%

The above benchmarks were performed on a dual core Intel Atom 330 @ 1.6GHz.
