9.1 ECLiPSe primitives to read/write EXDR terms
The ECLiPSe predicates to create and interpret EXDR-representation
read from and write directly to ECLiPSe streams. This means that
EXDR-format can be used readily to communicate via files, pipes,
sockets, queues etc.
This predicate writes terms in exdr format.
The type of the generated EXDR-term is the type resulting
from the "natural" mapping of the Eclipse terms.
Atoms are written as structures of arity 0 (not as strings).
Note that all information about variable sharing, variable
names and variable attributes is lost in the EXDR representation.
- read_exdr(+Stream, -Term)
This predicate reads exdr format and constructs a
corresponding Eclipse term.
Please refer to chapter 5 for the Tcl primitives,
and to chapter 8 for the Java primitives for manipulating
