The Builder type
Builder is an efficient way to build lazy
There are several functions for constructing
Builders, but only one
to inspect them: to extract any data, you have to turn them into lazy
Builder constructs a lazy
L.Bytestring by filling byte
arrays piece by piece. As each buffer is filled, it is 'popped'
off, to become a new chunk of the resulting lazy
All this is hidden from the user of the
Flushing the buffer state
Host-endian, unaligned writes
O(1). A Builder taking a single native machine word. The word is written in host order, host endian form, for the machine you're on. On a 64 bit machine the Word is an 8 byte value, on a 32 bit machine, 4 bytes. Values written this way are not portable to different endian or word sized machines, without conversion.
Write a Word16 in native host order and host endianness. 2 bytes will be written, unaligned.
Write a Word32 in native host order and host endianness. 4 bytes will be written, unaligned.
Write a Word64 in native host order. On a 32 bit machine we write two host order Word32s, in big endian form. 8 bytes will be written, unaligned.
