Official Mirror:
Tpl is a library for serializing C data. The data is stored in its natural binary form. The API is small and tries to stay "out of the way". Tpl can serialize many C data types, including structures. Tpl makes a convenient file format. For example, suppose a program needs to store a list of user names and ids. This can be expressed using the format string "A(si)". If the program needs two such lists (say, one for regular users and one for administrators) this could be expressed as "A(si)A(si)". It is easy to read and write this kind of structured data using tpl. Tpl can also be used as an IPC message format. It handles byte order issues and deframing individual messages off of a stream automatically.
