Bytesrw extends the OCaml Bytes module with composable, memory efficient, byte stream readers and writers compatible with effect based concurrency.

Except for byte slice life-times, these abstractions intentionnaly separate away ressource management and the specifics of reading and writing bytes.

Bytesrw is distributed under the ISC license. It has no dependencies.

Optional support for compressed and hashed bytes depends, at your wish, on the C zlib, libzstd, blake3, libmd and xxhash libraries.
