The hexpat-pickle package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

A library of combinators that allows Haskell data structures to be pickled (serialized) to/from XML via the Tree datatype defined in the hexpat package. It is source-code-similar to the pickling functionality of the HXT package, to ease the transition between the two libraries. This implementation is faster but less complete than HXT. This package does not depend on HXT.

Note that hexpat-pickle is still under development, so it is fairly likely that there will be some API changes coming.
