A Rust library for reading or writing binary values to or from streams which may not be aligned at a whole byte.
This library is intended to be flexible enough to wrap
around any stream which implements the
It also supports a wide array of integer data types as
containers for those binary values.
Add this to your
[dependencies] bitstream-io = "0.8"
and this to your crate root:
extern crate bitstream_io;
Traits and helpers for bitstream handling functionality
Bitstream readers are for reading signed and unsigned integer values from a stream whose sizes may not be whole bytes. Bitstream writers are for writing signed and unsigned integer values to a stream, also potentially un-aligned at a whole byte.
Both big-endian and little-endian streams are supported.
The only requirement for wrapped reader streams is that they must
Read trait, and the only requirement
for writer streams is that they must implement the
In addition, reader streams do not consume any more bytes from the underlying reader than necessary, buffering only a single partial byte as needed. Writer streams also write out all whole bytes as they are accumulated.
Readers and writers are also designed to work with integer types of any possible size. Many of Rust's built-in integer types are supported by default.
