A MessagePack implementation for Matlab

The code is written in pure Matlab, and has no dependencies beyond Matlab itself. It does not work in Octave, since Octave does not support unicode2native or native2unicode.

The files in this repository are taken from Transplant.

Basic Usage:

data = {'life, the universe, and everything', struct('the_answer', 42)};
bytes = dumpmsgpack(data)
data = parsemsgpack(bytes)
% returns: {'life, the universe, and everything', containers.Map('the_answer', 42)}

Converting Matlab to MsgPack:

Matlab MsgPack
string string
scalar number
logical true/false
vector array of numbers
uint8 vector bin
matrix array of array of numbers
empty matrix nil
cell array array
cell matrix array of arrays
struct map
containers.Map map
struct array array of maps
handles raise error

There is no way of encoding exts

Converting MsgPack to Matlab

MsgPack Matlab
string string
number scalar
true/false logical
nil empty matrix
array cell array
map containers.Map
bin uint8
ext uint8

Note that since structs don't support arbitrary field names, they can't be used for representing maps. We use containers.Map instead.
