Module (chicken blob)
This module contains procedures for dealing with "blobs". Blobs are unstructured byte arrays (basically "binary strings"). You can't do much with them, but they allow conversion to and from SRFI-4 number vectors which define how to access a blob's byte contents.
- make-blob SIZEprocedure
Returns a blob object of SIZE bytes, aligned on an 8-byte boundary, uninitialized.
- blob? Xprocedure
Returns #t if X is a blob object, or #f otherwise.
- blob-size BLOBprocedure
Returns the number of bytes in BLOB.
- blob->string BLOBprocedure
Returns a string with the contents of BLOB.
- string->blob STRINGprocedure
Returns a blob with the contents of STRING.
- blob=? BLOB1 BLOB2procedure
Returns #t if the two argument blobs are of the same size and have the same content.
