httparse 0.1.6

A tiny, safe, speedy, zero-copy HTTP/1.x parser.


A push library for parsing HTTP/1.x requests and responses.

The focus is on speed and safety. Unsafe code is used to keep parsing fast, but unsafety is contained in a submodule, with invariants enforced. The parsing internals use an Iterator instead of direct indexing, while skipping bounds checks.

The speed is comparable to the fast picohttpparser, currently being around 1.6 times slower than pico. Improvements can be made as a likely intrinsic, and simd, are stabilized in rustc.
