byteorder 0.2.3

Library for reading/writing numbers in big-endian and little-endian.
docs.rs failed to build byteorder-0.2.3
Please check build logs and if you believe this is docs.rs' fault, report into this issue report.

This crate provides convenience methods for encoding and decoding numbers in either big-endian or little-endian order. This is meant to replace the old methods defined on the standard library Reader and Writer traits.

Installation

This crate works with Cargo and is on crates.io. The package is regularly updated. Add is to your Cargo.toml like so:

[dependencies]
byteorder = "*"

If you want to augment existing Reader and Writer types, then import the extension methods like so:

extern crate byteorder;

use byteorder::{ReaderBytesExt, WriterBytesExt, BigEndian, LittleEndian};

For example:

use std::old_io::MemReader;
use byteorder::{BigEndian, ReaderBytesExt};

let mut rdr = MemReader::new(vec![2, 5, 3, 0]);
// Note that we use type parameters to indicate which kind of byte order
// we want!
assert_eq!(517, rdr.read_u16::<BigEndian>().unwrap());
assert_eq!(768, rdr.read_u16::<BigEndian>().unwrap());
