Query on NSKeyedArchiver


(Sai Kanduri) #1

Hi Tony,

From your comments on Pull Request #574 I understand that we cannot archive/un-archive non-NS objects using NsKeyedArchiver & NSKeyedUnarchiver.I s my understanding correct …? Does this means that archiving and un-archiving of swift types is not supported on Linux ?

Hi Sai,

We do have basic support for keyed archiving and unarchiving in swift-corelibs-foundation on Linux. The limitation is that the NSCoding protocol cannot be applied to Swift struct types, only class types. On Darwin, the class also must be a subclass of NSObject. This last limitation may not exist on Linux, but you should be aware that if you encode a non-NSObject subclass on Linux then you would not be able to decode it on Darwin.

Hi Tony,

This is very interesting caveat. Is there a plan to get this documented anywhere? I haven't seen any documentation for Swift Foundation published publicly anywhere akin to how it's done for other APIs at https://developer.apple.com/reference/.

With best regards, Max.

With respect to the NSObject requirement: It’s really more of a known issue than a permanent limitation.

To over summarize the situation: NSKeyedArchiver (the Objective-C one) puts a private category on NSObject and assumes all objects respond to those messages after that.

We don’t really have documentation for swift-corelibs-foundation beyond what we can put in our own headerdoc format there. That would be something I would really appreciate help on if anyone is interested in contributing.

BTW is anything blocking integrating SR-2416?

https://github.com/apple/swift-corelibs-foundation/pull/574

That allows value types to be archived too if they support _ObjectBridgeable (they’ll come back as reference types though).

Sorry, this fell off my radar. I’ll test and merge again.
