Efficient buffered output
This library provides an abstraction of buffered output of byte streams and several convenience functions to exploit it. For example, it allows to efficiently serialize Haskell values to lazy bytestrings with a large average chunk size. The large average chunk size allows to make good use of cache prefetching in later processing steps e.g. compression and reduces the sytem call overhead when writing the resulting lazy bytestring to a file or sending it over the network.
