Instances for Binary for the types defined in the vector package, making it easy to serialize vectors to and from disk. We use the generic interface to vectors, so all vector types are supported. Specific instances are provided for unboxed, boxed and storable vectors.

To serialize a vector:

*Data.Vector.Binary> let v = Data.Vector.fromList [1..10]
*Data.Vector.Binary> v
fromList [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10] :: Data.Vector.Vector
*Data.Vector.Binary> encode v

Which you can in turn compress before writing to disk:

compress . encode $ v
Chunk "\US\139\b\NUL\NUL\N...\229\240,\254:\NUL\NUL\NUL" Empty




Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
