An efficient packed, immutable Unicode text type (both strict and lazy), with a powerful loop fusion optimization framework. The 'Text' type represents Unicode character strings, in a time and space-efficient manner. This package provides text processing capabilities that are optimized for performance critical use, both in terms of large data quantities and high speed. The 'Text' type provides character-encoding, type-safe case conversion via whole-string case conversion functions. It also provides a range of functions for converting 'Text' values to and from 'ByteStrings', using several standard encodings. Efficient locale-sensitive support for text IO is also supported.
