Tom’s Obvious, Minimal Language (TOML)
TOML support within murex is pretty mature however it is not considered a primitive. Which means, while it is a recommended builtin which you should expect in most deployments of murex, it’s still an optional package and thus may not be present in some edge cases. This is because it relies on external source packages for the shell to compile.

ReadArray()Hook supported albeit TOML doesn’t support naked arrays
ReadArrayWithType()Hook supported albeit TOML doesn’t support naked arrays
ReadIndex()Works against all properties in TOML
ReadNotIndex()Works against all properties in TOML
Marshal()(type): Converts structured memory into a structured file format (eg for stdio)
ReadArray()(type): Read from a data type one array element at a time
ReadIndex()(type): Data type handler for the index,
ReadMap()(type): Treat data type as a key/value structure and read its contents
ReadNotIndex()(type): Data type handler for the bang-prefixed index,
Unmarshal()(type): Converts a structured file format into structured memory
WriteArray()(type): Write a data type, one array element at a time
[[(element): Outputs an element from a nested structure
[(index): Outputs an element from an array, map or table
cast: Alters the data type of the previous function without altering it’s output
format: Reformat one data-type into another data-type
jsonl: JSON Lines (primitive)
open: Open a file with a preferred handler
runtime: Returns runtime information on the internal state of murex
yaml: YAML Ain’t Markup Language (YAML)
