fast conversion between double precision floating point and text; profiling libr


A library that performs fast, accurate conversion between double precision floating point and text.

This library is implemented as bindings to the C++ @double-conversion@ library written by Florian Loitsch at Google: <>.

The 'Text' versions of these functions are about 30 times faster than the default 'show' implementation for the 'Double' type.

The 'ByteString' versions are /slower/ than the 'Text' versions; roughly half the speed. (This seems to be due to the cost of allocating 'ByteString' values via @malloc@.)

As a final note, be aware that the @bytestring-show@ package is about 50% slower than simply using 'show'.

This package provides a library for the Haskell programming language, compiled for profiling. See for more information on Haskell.
