# Main Serialized data type

data Serialized #

Represents a serialized value of a particular type. Attempts can be made to deserialize it at certain types

# Going into and out of `Serialized`

toSerialized :: Typeable a => (a -> [Word8]) -> a -> Serialized #

Put a Typeable value that we are able to actually turn into bytes into a `Serialized`

value ready for deserialization later

fromSerialized :: forall a. Typeable a => ([Word8] -> a) -> Serialized -> Maybe a #

If the `Serialized`

value contains something of the given type, then use the specified deserializer to return `Just`

that.
Otherwise return `Nothing`

.

# Handy serialization functions

serializeWithData :: Data a => a -> [Word8] #

Use a `Data`

instance to implement a serialization scheme dual to that of `deserializeWithData`

deserializeWithData :: Data a => [Word8] -> a #

Use a `Data`

instance to implement a deserialization scheme dual to that of `serializeWithData`
