The Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR), as specified by RFC 8949, is a binary data serialization format. CBOR is similar to JSON but serializes to binary which is smaller and faster to generate and parse. This package provides an OCaml implementation of CBOR.

An implementation of the Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) as specified by RFC 8949 for OCaml.
It can process CBOR data items without a complete in-memory representation of the data (see
This library supports the CBOR basic generic data model (see CBOR Data Models) modulo following TODOs:
[ ] Support for IEEE 754 Half-Precision Float (16 bits). Support for decoding such values could be added with some minimal OCaml code (see https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc8949.html#name-half-precision)
[ ] Indefinite-lenght byte and text strings
In addition to the basic generic data model this implementation supports:
Simple values for
Cborl.Integer zitems with
zthat is larger than what can be encoded in 8 bytes will be encoded as Bignums (tag 2 or 3 followed by a bytestring; see Section 3.4.3 of RFC 8949).
