thanks for that explanation. From the error messages i
got i already thought of something like this. But still
i'm confused, what is the advantage to implement the
sequence protocol for my type then?
The type that i implemented is a "CAN message", don't know
if this means something to you, it is a communication message
with 0 to 8 bytes content. To access this content i thought
there would be an advantage in implementing the sequence
protocol. What is the advantage then?
