A retake on netstrings.

wNetstrings are a silly format I thought of while writing a tnetstrings parser with Parsec in Haskell.

An arguable weakness of tnetstrings is that you need to hold the string up to the type mark in memory in order to start parsing them. This is arguably minimal, since you still need to have everything in memory in order to parse it properly (into a number or whatever). A slightly bigger issue I ran into while writing the parser is that it was hard to write the parser without backtracking, making it slower than it could be (mainly because of Lists and Dicts). Now, arguably, that's just because I know shit about Haskell.

Another format?

import Control.Applicative hiding (many)
data TNetString = N
| B Bool
| S String
| I Integer
#!/usr/bin/env perl
use warnings;
use strict;
# Read the first parameter: tablename.
my $tablename = shift;
# The first line holds the names of the fields.
my $fields = <>;
