Hello !

swab 1.0 has been released.

swab is a general purpose buffer handling module that make life easier.


Available in erlang.mk package index, too.

swab can :

     * cast data and sort lines.
     * decode, encode and convert data, including EBCDIC.
     * catch data that becomes the new current buffer.
     * match data and return the current buffer or otherwise continue 
next directives, if any.
     * store a buffer queue and maybe use it later to compose another 
buffer for instance, by merging or concatenating.
     * do diverse specialized (or custom) actions.

swab offer a very easy way to chain directives as you would do by 
chaining commands with pipes in a shell.
Each step can modify the input buffer that becomes a new current buffer, 
and so on.

swab uses many existing Erlang internal functions but manages for you 
the multiplicity of possible return values ​​and exceptions of those ones.

swab give the possibility to debug all or part of the directive chain, 
to do hexdump à la 'od' and also ASN1 pretty printing à la 'openssl 

I hope you will enjoy this module !
