Project Description


Version-independent bytes-chains

Just run


pip install byt

to get the most recent stable version.


The only entry point is the ``byt.Byt`` class which automatically loads
depending on the python version you're running. You'll just use it like this:


from byt import Byt

b = Byt('hello world!')
>> Byt('hello world!')
>> '68 65 6c 6c 6f 20 77 6f 72 6c 64 21'
print(byt.Byt('str1') + 'str2')
>> TypeError: can't concat Byt to str
>> [114, 49]


All the options are documented in the docstrings for the ``Byt`` class. These can be viewed in a Python shell using:


from byt import Byt

or, in IPython using:


from byt import Byt
