Type-safe marshalling between processes of the same executable
This is a pragmatic approach to type-safe marshalling. We define
type encap as an arbitrary value that carries a type identifier with it.
The type identifier is generated when the functor
Netplex_encap.Make_encap is applied. Every instantiation of this
functor generates a new type identifier.
The idea is then that an
encap value can be marshalled to another
Marshal, and when it is unwrapped the type identifier
is checked. Unwrapping is only successful when the
from the same functor instantiation is used as the
This module is incompatible with:
Only some of these assumptions can be checked at runtime by this implementation.
