Dealing with raw bytes is a pain, but there are a number of situations where it can be necessary:

  • Interfacing with C libraries
  • Communicating via custom network protocols
  • Compressing data structures to their most compact representation

Gloss tries to make things simple, by automatically transforming a simple specification of a byte format into both an encoder and a streaming decoder. It is built into Aleph, where it can greatly simplify communicating via complex protocols.
