9.2.1 Untagged Data

When using these routines both ends of the wire know exactly what types are coming and going and in what order. This data is restricted to the following types:

Function: wire:wire-output-byte wire byte
Function: wire:wire-get-byte wire
Function: wire:wire-output-number wire number
Function: wire:wire-get-number wire &optional signed
Function: wire:wire-output-string wire string
Function: wire:wire-get-string wire

These functions either output or input an object of the specified data type. When you use any of these output routines to send data across the wire, you must use the corresponding input routine interpret the data.
