Description : Fast binary serialization
The 'store' package provides efficient binary serialization. There are a
couple features that particularly distinguish it from most prior Haskell
* 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.
* 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
This package is required for latest upstream version of haskell-stack.
This package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Haskell
