serialize_handle — Serialize the content of a handle.
serialize_handle serializes the content of Handle and returns the serialized item in SerializedItem (see fwrite_serialized_item for an introduction of the basic principle of serialization). The serialized item can later be deserialized with deserialize_handle.
Note that not all handle types support serialization. To check if a handle can be serializes, use tuple_is_serializable or tuple_is_serializable_elem. Handles that have already been cleared cannot be serialized.
Also note that the serialized item created by this operator is compatible with the type specific deserialization operators, such as deserialize_matrix or deserialize_shape_model.
Handle that should be serialized.
Handle containing the serialized item.
create_matrix (3, 3, 0, MatrixID) serialize_handle (MatrixID, SerializedMatrix) deserialize_handle (SerializedMatrix, MatrixID2)
If the parameters are valid, the operator serialize_handle returns the value 2 (H_MSG_TRUE). Otherwise, an exception is raised.
