Elixir v1.9.1 List.Chars protocol View Source

The List.Chars protocol is responsible for converting a structure to a charlist (only if applicable).

The only function required to be implemented is to_charlist/1 which does the conversion.

The to_charlist/1 function automatically imported by Kernel invokes this protocol.
