  Description     : Extremely fast Haskell I/O library using packed strings
 Data.ByteString (formerly FastPackedString/FPS) provides packed
 strings (byte arrays held by a ForeignPtr), along with a list
 interface to these strings. It lets you do extremely fast IO in
 Haskell; in some cases, even faster than typical C implementations,
 and much faster than [Char]. It uses a flexible "foreign pointer"
 representation, allowing the transparent use of Haskell or C code to
 manipulate the strings.
 Data.ByteString is written in Haskell98 + the foreign function
 interface and cpp. It has been tested succesfully with GHC 6.4 and
 6.5, and hugs March 2005.
