Rust: rustc 1.31.0 (abe02cefd 2018-12-04)

Compare with hex:

  • Encoding ~10x over
  • Decoding ~10x over

Compare with rustc-hex:

  • Encoding ~2.5x over
  • Decoding ~7x over

Examples

Encode to hex

use faster_hex::hex_string;

let result = hex_string(b"Hello world!");
assert_eq!(result, "48656c6c6f20776f726c6421");

Encode to upper case hex

use faster_hex::hex_string_upper;

let result = hex_string_upper(b"Hello world!");
assert_eq!(result, "48656C6C6F20776F726C6421");

Decode

use faster_hex::hex_decode;

let src = b"48656c6c6f20776f726c6421";
let mut dst = vec![0; src.len() / 2];
hex_decode(src, &mut dst).unwrap();
assert_eq!(dst, b"Hello world!");

Decode with case check

use faster_hex::{hex_decode_with_case, CheckCase};

let src = b"48656c6c6f20776f726c6421";
let mut dst = vec![0; src.len() / 2];

assert!(hex_decode_with_case(src, &mut dst, CheckCase::Lower).is_ok());
assert_eq!(dst, b"Hello world!");

assert!(hex_decode_with_case(src, &mut dst, CheckCase::None).is_ok());
assert_eq!(dst, b"Hello world!");

assert!(hex_decode_with_case(src, &mut dst, CheckCase::Upper).is_err());

Serde feature


use serde::{Deserialize, Serialize};

#[derive(Debug, PartialEq, Eq, Serialize, Deserialize)]
struct Simple {
  #[serde(with = "faster_hex")]
  foo: Vec<u8>,
  #[serde(with = "faster_hex::nopfx_lowercase")]
  bar: Vec<u8>,
}
