The API docs for
This module extends Base.Sequence with bin_io.
I’m trying to figure out how to use
bin_prot to serialise
Sequence sequences. So far nothing I’ve tried has had success. Is it possible to do this at this point without writing a chunk of
bin_prot support code for
Sequence? Here are some of the things I’ve tried:
# module C = Core_kernel;; ... # #require "ppx_bin_prot";; # open Bin_prot.Std;; # open Bin_prot.Common;; # type t = int C.Sequence.t;; ... # C.Sequence.bin_size_t;; Error: Unbound value C.Sequence.bin_size_t # type t = int C.Sequence.t [@@deriving bin_io];; Error: Unbound value C.Sequence.bin_shape_t
The only reference I can see to
bin_io in the source files
sequence.mli in the
core_kernel repo is for the submodule
Core_kernel.Sequence.Merge_with_duplicates_element, which has
[@@deriving bin_io] after its type definition.
bin_prot functions do indeed get defined for this module, but I don’t understand how this module would help me serialize sequences, and none of the experiments I’ve tried with it have provided insight.
I don’t think that
Merge_with_duplicates_element is by itself supposed to let me use
bin_prot. None of my experiments with it got anywhere.
