[Haskell-cafe] Fast code question

I *do* know what Packed Decimal is; at my previous job, I actually had a
whole Haskell library for parsing them. The only immediate suggestion that
pops to mind is to use Int instead of Integer (Int uses regular 32- or
64-bit integers, Integer uses arbitrary precision integers). If you send me
a sample Packed Decimal file, I can test out your code and get a better feel
for it that way.
Good luck with those mainframes, they can be beasts sometimes. Have you had
to parse EBCDIC yet? *That* was fun, manually copying all those character
codes from some IBM web page... ;)
