Buffered Random Access (BRA) provides easy random memory access to a sequential source of data in Rust. This is achieved by greedily retaining all memory read from a given source.


Please see the documentation for additional info.

use std::io::Read;
use bra::GreedyAccessReader;

let reader = get_reader();
let mut reader = GreedyAccessReader::new(reader);

// random access to bytes!
let k: u8 = reader.get(12)?;
// random slicing!
let s: &[u8] = reader.slice(20..48)?;
assert_eq!(s.len(), 28);
// also functions as a buffered reader
let mut chunk = [0; 20];
reader.read_exact(&mut chunk)?;
