Buffers

type pos = int

Position within buffers

type pos_ref = pos ref

Reference to a position within buffers

val create_buf : int -> buf

create_buf n creates a buffer of size n.

val buf_len : buf -> int

buf_len buf returns the length of buf.

val assert_pos : pos -> unit

assert_pos pos

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if position pos is negative.

val check_pos : buf -> pos -> unit

check_pos buf pos

  • raises Buffer_short

    if position pos exceeds the length of buffer buf.

val check_next : buf -> pos -> unit

check_next buf pos

  • raises Buffer_short

    if the next position after pos exceeds the length of buffer buf.

val safe_get_pos : buf -> pos_ref -> pos

safe_get_pos buf pos_ref

  • returns

    the position referenced by pos_ref within buffer buf.

    @raise Buffer_short

    if the position exceeds the length of the buffer.

val blit_string_buf : ?src_pos:int -> string -> ?dst_pos:int -> buf -> len:int -> unit

blit_string_buf ?src_pos src ?dst_pos dst ~len blits len bytes of the source string src starting at position src_pos to buffer dst starting at position dst_pos.

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if the designated ranges are invalid.

val blit_bytes_buf : ?src_pos:int -> bytes -> ?dst_pos:int -> buf -> len:int -> unit

blit_bytes_buf ?src_pos src ?dst_pos dst ~len blits len bytes of the source byte sequence src starting at position src_pos to buffer dst starting at position dst_pos.

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if the designated ranges are invalid.

val blit_buf_string : ?src_pos:int -> buf -> ?dst_pos:int -> bytes -> len:int -> unit

blit_buf_string ?src_pos src ?dst_pos dst ~len blits len bytes of the source buffer src starting at position src_pos to string dst starting at position dst_pos.

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if the designated ranges are invalid.

val blit_buf_bytes : ?src_pos:int -> buf -> ?dst_pos:int -> bytes -> len:int -> unit

blit_buf_bytes ?src_pos src ?dst_pos dst ~len blits len bytes of the source buffer src starting at position src_pos to byte sequence dst starting at position dst_pos.

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if the designated ranges are invalid.

val blit_buf : ?src_pos:int -> src:buf -> ?dst_pos:int -> dst:buf -> int -> unit

blit_buf ?src_pos ~src ?dst_pos ~dst len blits len bytes of the source buffer src starting at position src_pos to destination buffer dst starting at position dst_pos.

  • raises Invalid_argument

    if the designated ranges are invalid.

Errors and exceptions

exception Buffer_short

Buffer too short for read/write operation

exception No_variant_match

Used internally for backtracking

module ReadError : sig ... end
exception Read_error of ReadError.t * pos

ReadError (err, err_pos)

exception Poly_rec_write of string

PolyRecWrite type gets raised when the user attempts to write or estimate the size of a value of a type that is bound through a polymorphic record field in type definition type.

exception Empty_type of string

EmptyType gets raised when the user attempts to write or estimate the size of a value of an empty type, which would not make sense.

val raise_read_error : ReadError.t -> pos -> 'a

raise_read_error err pos

val raise_variant_wrong_type : string -> pos -> 'a

raise_variant_wrong_type name pos

val raise_concurrent_modification : string -> 'a

raise_concurrent_modification loc

  • raises Failure

    if a binary writer detects a concurrent change to the underlying data structure.

val array_bound_error : unit -> 'a

array_bound_error ()

Bigarrays

type vec = vec64
type mat = mat64

Miscellaneous

val copy_htbl_list : ( 'a, 'b ) Hashtbl.t -> ('a * 'b) list -> ( 'a, 'b ) Hashtbl.t

copy_htbl_list htbl lst adds all (key, value) pairs in lst to hash table htbl.
