The cereal package

[ Tags: bsd3, data, library, parsing ] [ Propose Tags ]

A binary serialization library, similar to binary, that introduces an isolate primitive for parser isolation, and replaces the asynchronous errors with a user-handleable Either type. Similar to binary in performance, but uses a strict ByteString instead of a lazy ByteString, thus restricting it to operating on finite inputs.
