Readme for store-0.4.3.2

[back to package description]

store

The 'store' package provides efficient binary serialization. There are a couple features that particularly distinguish it from most prior Haskell serialization libraries:

  • Its primary goal is speed. By default, direct machine representations are used for things like numeric values (Int, Double, Word32, etc) and buffers (Text, ByteString, Vector, etc). This means that much of serialization uses the equivalent of memcpy.

    We have plans for supporting architecture independent serialization - see #36 and #31. This plan makes little endian the default, so that the most common endianness has no overhead.

  • Instead of implementing lazy serialization / deserialization involving multiple input / output buffers, peek and poke always work with a single buffer. This buffer is allocated by asking the value for its size before encoding. This simplifies the encoding logic, and allows for highly optimized tight loops.

  • store can optimize size computations by knowing when some types always use the same number of bytes. This allows us to compute the byte size of a Vector Int32 by just doing length v * 4.

It also features:

  • Optimized serialization instances for many types from base, vector, bytestring, text, containers, time, template-haskell, and more.

  • TH and GHC Generics based generation of Store instances for datatypes

  • TH generation of testcases.
