Text: Fast, packed Unicode strings, using stream fusion

This package provides the Data.Text library, a library for the space- and time-efficient manipulation of Unicode text in Haskell.

Normalization, conversion, and collation, oh my!

This library intentionally provides a simple API based on the Haskell prelude's list manipulation functions. For more complicated real-world tasks, such as Unicode normalization, conversion to and from a larger variety of encodings, and collation, use the text-icu package.

That library uses the well-respected and liberally licensed ICU library to provide these facilities.

Authors

The base code for this library was originally written by Tom Harper, based on the stream fusion framework developed by Roman Leshchinskiy, Duncan Coutts, and Don Stewart.

The core library was fleshed out, debugged, and tested by Bryan O'Sullivan bos@serpentine.com, and he is the current maintainer.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
