byte-blob

Description

byte-blob is a library of routines for manipulating byte vectors encoded as blobs.

Library Procedures

Predicates

[procedure] (byte-blob? X) => BOOL

Returns #t if the given object is a byte-blob, #f otherwise.

[procedure] (byte-blob-empty? BYTE-BLOB) => BOOL

Returns #t if the given byte-blob is empty, #f otherwise.

Constructors

[procedure] (byte-blob-empty) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns an empty byte-blob.

[procedure] (byte-blob-replicate N V) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob of length N, where each element is V.

[procedure] (byte-blob-cons X BYTE-BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Analogous to list cons, but of complexity O(N), as it requires copying the elements of the byte-blob argument.

[procedure] (blob->byte-blob BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob containing the elements of the given blob.

[procedure] (list->byte-blob LIST) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob containing the elements of LIST.

[procedure] (string->byte-blob STRING) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob containing the elements of STRING.

Accessors

[procedure] (byte-blob-length BYTE-BLOB) => INTEGER

Returns the number of elements contained in the given byte-blob.

[procedure] (byte-blob-car BYTE-BLOB) => X

Returns the first element of a byte-blob. The argument byte-blob must be non-empty, or an exception will be thrown.

[procedure] (byte-blob-cdr BYTE-BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob that contains the elements after the first element of the given byte-blob. The argument byte-blob must be non-empty, or an exception will be thrown.

[procedure] (byte-blob-ref BYTE-BLOB I) => BYTE

Returns the i-th element of the given byte-blob as a signed byte.

[procedure] (byte-blob-uref BYTE-BLOB I) => BYTE

Returns the i-th element of the given byte-blob as an unsigned byte.

Transformers

[procedure] (byte-blob-set! BYTE-BLOB I V) => VOID

Sets the i-th element of the given byte-blob to the signed byte V.

[procedure] (byte-blob-uset! BYTE-BLOB I V) => VOID

Sets the i-th element of the given byte-blob to the unsigned byte V.

[procedure] (byte-blob-append BYTE-BLOB BYTE-BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Appends two byte-blobs together.

[procedure] (byte-blob-reverse BYTE-BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob that contains the elements of the given byte-blob in reverse order.

[procedure] (byte-blob-intersperse BYTE-BLOB BYTE) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob with the given byte placed between the elements of the given byte-blob.

[procedure] (byte-blob-map F BYTE-BLOB) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob obtained by applying F to each element of the given byte-blob.

[procedure] (byte-blob->list BYTE-BLOB [F]) => LIST

Returns a list containing the elements of the given byte-blob. If procedure F is provided as a second argument, it is applied to every element of the returned list.

[procedure] (byte-blob->string BYTE-BLOB) => STRING

Returns a string containing the elements of the given byte-blob.

Subsequences

[procedure] (byte-blob-take BYTE-BLOB N) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns the prefix of the given byte-blob of length N.

[procedure] (byte-blob-drop BYTE-BLOB N) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns the suffix of the given byte-blob after the first N elements.

[procedure] (byte-blob-span BYTE-BLOB START END) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns the subsequence of the give byte-blob from position START to position END.

Fold

[procedure] (byte-blob-fold-left F INIT BYTE-BLOB) => VALUE
[procedure] (byte-blob-fold-right F INIT BYTE-BLOB) => VALUE

Given a procedure of two arguments, a starting value, and a byte-blob, reduces the byte-blob using the supplied procedure, from left to right, or right to left, respectively.

Find

[procedure] (byte-blob-find NEEDLE HAYSTACK) => LIST

Finds all non-overlapping instances of the byte-blob NEEDLE in the byte-blob HAYSTACK. The first element of the returned list is the prefix of HAYSTACK prior to any matches of NEEDLE. The second is a list of lists.

The first element of each pair in the list is a span from the beginning of a match to the beginning of the next match, while the second is a span from the beginning of the match to the end of the input.

I/O

[procedure] (file->byte-blob FILENAME) => BYTE-BLOB

Returns a byte-blob with the contents of the given file.

[procedure] (byte-blob-read PORT N) => BYTE-BLOB

Reads a byte-blob of length N from the given port.

[procedure] (byte-blob-write PORT BYTE-BLOB) => UNDEFINED

Writes the given byte-blob to the given port.

SRFI-4 transformers

[procedure] (u8vector->byte-blob U8VECTOR) => BYTE-BLOB
[procedure] (s8vector->byte-blob S8VECTOR) => BYTE-BLOB
[procedure] (u16vector->byte-blob U16VECTOR) => BYTE-BLOB
[procedure] (s16vector->byte-blob S16VECTOR) => BYTE-BLOB
