digitalmars.D.announce - Orange - a serialization library

This if the first release of the Orange serialization library. Here is a 
short description of the library:

Orange is a serialization library for D1 and D2, supporting both Tango 
and Phobos. It can serialize most of the available types in D, including 
third party types and can serialize through base class references. It 
supports fully automatic serialization of all supported types and also 
supports several ways to customize the serialization. Orange has a 
separate front end (the serializer) and back end (the archive) making it 
possible for the user to create new archive types that can be used with 
the existing serializer.

Yes, it's fixed. I'm including a modified version of the whole std.xml module, not pretty but it works. -- /Jacob Carlborg

One question. http://dsource.org/projects/orange/browser/orange/xml/PhobosXML.d Why use string mixin? Masahiro

Exactly, there a several features in D2 that is lexical illegal in D1. I thought that it was the easiest solution, instead of creating a build system that excluded the file for D1, then people are free to use their own build system instead of a specific one they perhaps don't like. -- /Jacob Carlborg

Funny solution :) Is the xml code different from dsource's std2.xml ? The api reference is a bit too tidy to my liking ;)

The difference is that I added a parent attribute to the Element class, I also added a few wrapper methods to make it easier to wrap in a tango interface.

Thanks. I didn't know this technique. Hmm...

Nice work! I'll try it out eventually, but right now I've been too busy with stuff that doesn't require serialization. This is another nice little library that would be useful to a lot of people but has "dependency hell" written all over it if D users are generally required to go out and install small misc. pieces of functionality like this themselves. IMHO eventually serialization belongs in the std. lib and seeing that Orange is Boost licensed, once some of the XML and compiler issues are fixed, this may be a good candidate.

Thanks. I'm more than happy to make the necessary changes to include Orange in Phobos. -- /Jacob Carlborg
