# Elixir Binary

Small library for handling binaries in Elixir. It's a wrapper around erlang :binary, plus a few String-alike functions.

When using it instead of erlang's :binary you get more sexy code and typespecs, plus you get some functions that String offers
like `reverse/1`, `trim_trailing/2` etc. You should not use String for binaries becaues it operates on codepoints, not bytes.

Full list of functions can be found on [hexdocs](

In edge cases, the behavior is modeled after Elixir.String. API will be frozen with version 0.1.0. I'm hoping to collect some
feedback first, but I don't plan any breaking API changes.

## Usage

Add dependency in your mix.exs:

def deps do
  [{:binary, "~> 0.0.4"}]

iex< import Binary
iex> [1, 2] |> from_list |> pad_trailing(4) |> reverse |> split_at(-1)
{<<0, 0, 2>>,  <<1>>}
