Interoperable serializers for C,C++,Haskell,Icon,Java,ML
New port: devel/asdlgen generate serializers for C,C++,Haskell,Icon,Java,ML
asdlGen generates data structure and serializer code from ASDL
specifications . It is especially helpful for exchanging
tree like data structures between different programming languages.
Currently C, C++, Haskell, Java, Icon, OCaml and SML are supported.
Although the asdlGen project itself seems no longer actively
maintained, ASDL is "alive" as it is used (at least) in the
Moby  and Python [3,4] compilers.
The port optionally installs a simple usage example  for all
seven programming languages. I developed it primarily to test the
port, but it could be helpful to users of asdlGen to get a quicker
start, especially if a less familiar programming language is
involved in their project. Reviewers/committers can easily make
use of it via the "test-demo" target.
