Module Ask.Type

Column base types.

Base types

type 'a t = ..

The type for column types represented by value of type 'a in OCaml.

type t +=
| Bool : bool t(*

Stored as 0 and 1

| Int : int t(*

Stored as int64

| Int64 : int64 t
| Float : float t
| Text : string t
| Blob : string t
| Option : 'a t -> 'a option t(*

Nullable type.


Base types supported by all database backends.

Coded types

Types coded by other types. Provides arbitrary OCaml column types. Don't be too fancy if you expect other, non OCaml-based, systems to access the database.

module Coded : sig ... end

Coded types.

type t +=
| Coded : ('a'b) Coded.t -> 'a t

The types for a column coding values of type 'a as values of type 'b.

Invalid types

val invalid_unknown : unit -> 'a

invalid_unknown () raises Invalid_argument indicating that the type is unknown.

val invalid_nested_option : unit -> 'a

invalid_nested_option raises Invalid_argument indicating that nested option types are not supported.


val pp : Stdlib.Format.formatter -> 'a t -> unit

pp ppf t formats an unspecified representation of t on ppf. Raises Invalid_argument if t is unknown to the module.

val value_pp : 'a t -> Stdlib.Format.formatter -> 'a -> unit

value_pp t is a formatter for value of type t. Raises Invalid_argument if t is unknown to the module.
