Not much different I guess, but I haven't followed the discussion
closely. Anyway, the only value of my DNS code is that it already
handles DNS packets in pure Haskell.

BTW, if I abstract the deserialization monad using the BinaryParser type
class, I can use different concrete backends, for example Parsec,
low-level UArray based parser, FastPackedString based parser, NewBinary,
etc. Can be handy for debugging - Parsec can give nice error messages,
the only problem is that it insists in line/column positions.

Best regards

I am searching for a programmer who is good at least in some of
[Haskell, ML, C++, Linux, FreeBSD, math] for work in Warsaw, Poland
