:+1: Thanks for the talk. This is quite helpful for me. I’ve been wanting to update my crc library to have yielding nifs, especially since in most use cases its used with nerves on embedded devices. It has the variable binary input case you mention.

I might have questions when I get into the thick of it, but I will look through your provided and recommended examples first.
