Authored by arphaman on Aug 3 2015, 2:15 PM.



This patch contains an initial documentation for the MIR serialization format.

This initial document contains the 'Introduction', 'Overview' and the 'High Level Structure' sections,
which briefly describe the MIR serialization format. The follow up patches will expand on this initial
document and will describe the format using the appropriate level of detail.

LGTM, but a couple comments/questions.

Do you actually depend on it being a block literal string? I thought that that was just syntax sugar in the YAML language, so that really any string should be fine (although the block literal string is probably easiest to read)

Please add specific TODO's here for everything that is merely touched on (but that you know you eventually need to expand on) so that nothing falls through the cracks.

Yes, right now this has to be an actual block literal scalar, as the YAML parser has a separate node class for block scalars, and the MIR parser looks for that node when looking for the embedded IR module.
