tagged-binary: Provides tools for serializing data tagged with type information.
Very minimal library providing tools for serializing and
decoding data into
ByteString tagged with information
about its type, inspired by Cloud Haskell and
Intended for use by libraries and frameworks in distributed contexts, such as distributed computation between native servers and communication between native servers and ghcjs/various front-ends, for behavior similar to the polymorphic communication channels of Cloud Haskell and distributed-process; servers can send tagged data, and clients can choose to selectively accept, ignore or queue incoming messages depending on their types.
For basic encoding, decoding and categorization, only
Data.Binary.Tagged should be necessary.
Data.Binary.Tagged.Internal is exported in case you
> let x = encodeTagged (1 :: Int) > decodeTagged x :: Maybe Bool Nothing > decodeTagged x :: Maybe Int Just 1
