Type correspondence between Python and MistQL#

Separate from the specification of the language, the python implementation maps from Python types to MistQL types in a specific manner, as documented by the table below. As the following is NOT part of the language, rather the library, the correspondence may change with further releases of the mistql package, following semver.

Note that this is generally very restrictive in what it allows, but can be easily expanded as necessary. For examples, iterables as a whole may, outside of specific cases, be casted directly to MistQL array types.

If this correspondence doesn't work for you for some reason, please open an issue and describe the situation carefully. This correspondence is easier to change than the language itself.
