Description : Python module for manipulation of binary data
Bitstring is a pure Python module designed to help make the creation and
analysis of binary data as simple and natural as possible.
Bitstrings can be constructed from integers (big and little endian), hex,
octal, binary, strings or files. They can be sliced, joined, reversed,
inserted into, overwritten, etc. with simple functions or slice notation.
They can also be read from, searched and replaced, and navigated in, similar
to a file or stream.
Reasons for packaging
This package brings simple support for arrays of bits, is well documented,
and works very well. It provides similar functionalities to bitarray
(already packaged) but does not require any compiled c-extension.
Due to the nature of this package, it should probably be team-maintained by
the Debian Python Modules Team (DPMT).
