Class type

A key sequence is a sequence of one or more input events that form a unit. Input events include characters, function keys, and mouse actions.

(Info-goto-node "(elisp)Key Sequences")

include Ecaml_value.Value.Subtype with type t = Ecaml_value__.Value0.t
type t

We expose private value for free identity conversions when the value is nested in some covariant type, e.g. (symbols : Symbol.t list :> Value.t list) rather than symbols ~f:Symbol.to_value.

val sexp_of_t : t -> Sexplib0.Sexp.t
val eq : t -> t -> bool

eq t1 t2 = Value.eq (to_value t1) (to_value t2), i.e. eq checks whether the Emacs values underlying t1 and t2 are physically equal. This is different than phys_equal t1 t2, because we don't always wrap eq Emacs values in phys_equal OCaml values. I.e. phys_equal t1 t2 implies eq t1 t2, but not the converse.
