One more issue. Take this function as an example.
split(Binary, SplitKeys) -> List
Binary = binary()
SplitKeys = binary() | [binary()]
Wouldn't it be useful to allow integers in SplitKeys in place of
binaries? We can treat them as 1-byte binaries (should be easy to
implement), and it will make code more readable in cases when keys
consist of 1 character.
With this option, we can just write
split( Buffer, "\n " )
> binary:match(<<"hello, world\n">>,[<<"\n">>,<<" ">>]).
It can be applied to many functions in this module, and it should
increase code readability in general.
