I just pushed it to bitbucket <http://bitbucket.org/bos/text> and
and you can install it from the text site on
the usual way:
cabal install text
What's in this release?
New functions for reading integers and floating point
an oft-requested feature. They're fast, too: they range from parity with
their bytestring counterparts, to up to 4 times faster. You can expect to
parse 3 to 4 million Int values per second out of a text file, or up 2
million Double values per second. They're also easy to use, give error
messages, and come in strict and lazy variants.
UTF-8 decoding and encoding are now very
They're up to 9x faster than they were, and close to the performance of pure
C UTF-8 decoding and encoding.
The Eq and Ord instances are also now very fast, up to 5x faster than
They're now faster than the bytestring instances.
Several other common functions received drive-by performance improvements
Better protection against rare crashes on really huge volumes of data.
