The binary-typed package
Binary serialization tagged with type information, allowing for
typechecking and useful error messages at the receiving site.
This package serves the same purpose as tagged-binary, with a couple of key differences:
Support of different kinds of serialized type annotations, each with specific strengths and weaknesses.
Error messages can provide details on type errors at the cost of longer message lengths to include the necessary information.
Very small performance overhead compared to using standard
Binarydue to caching when using hashed type information. Since shown and full types are not cached, decoding them has a significant performance hit (ballpark: factor of two).
No depencency on
Internalmodules of other libraries, and a very small dependency footprint in general.
For information about usage, see the Data.Binary.Typed.Tutorial module.
