vector-binary-instances: Instances of Data.Binary and Data.Serialize for vector

This is a package candidate release! Here you can preview how this package release will appear once published to the main package index (which can be accomplished via the 'maintain' link below). Please note that once a package has been published to the main package index it cannot be undone! Please consult the package uploading documentation for more information.


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
