Bug#479160: ITP: sexplib310 -- automated conversions between OCaml-values and S-expressions

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stefano Zacchiroli <zack@debian.org>

* Package name    : sexplib310
  Version         : 3.7.4
  Upstream Author : Markus Mottl <markus.mottl@gmail.com>

  Description     : automated conversions between OCaml-values and S-expressions

 Sexplib library contains functionality for parsing and pretty-printing
 Sexplib also contains a preprocessing module for Camlp4, which can be
 used to automatically generate code from type definitions for
 efficiently converting OCaml-values to S-expressions and vice versa.
 In combination with the parsing and pretty-printing functionality this
 frees users from having to write their own I/O-routines for the
 datastructures they define.  Possible errors during automatic
 conversions from S-expressions to OCaml-values are reported in a very
 human-readable way.
 Another module contained in Sexplib you to extract and replace
 sub-expressions in S-expressions. 

The package is being worked on at
(already writable to debian-ocaml-maint contributors; help is welcome
from them as well as from anyone interested).

Sexplib is a dependency for Core (see ITP #479152).
