These functions provide a safe way of performing I/O on any extensionally defined data type. Functions, objects, and values whose type is bound through a polymorphic record field are not supported, but everything else is.
There is no support for cyclic or shared values and only little endian computer architectures are supported.
Architecture support ==================== bin-prot works at its best on little endian architecture and has been thoroughly tested only on i386 and amd64. Using it on other architectures can exhibit a number of limitation. Here is a summary of such limitation taken from a post by upstream author Markus Mottl to the Caml mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/fa.caml/msg/80da07bb322f2d7a) > more»
