compiler for protocol buffer definition files

Protocol buffers are a flexible, efficient, automated mechanism for serializing structured data - similar to XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages. You can even update your data structure without breaking deployed programs that are compiled against the "old" format.

Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC protocols and file formats.

This package contains the protocol buffer compiler that is used for translating from .proto files (containing the definitions) to the language binding for the supported languages.
