A trait that converts from a type to a generic representation.


Converts one type Src into another type Dst assuming they have the same representation type Repr.

Given a generic representation Repr of a Dst, returns Dst.

Given a value of type Src, returns its generic representation Repr.

Maps a value of a given type Origin using a function on a type Inter which has the same representation type of Origin.

Maps a value of a given type Origin using a function on the representation type Repr of Origin.
