Archives and Serializations
NSDeserializer class declares methods that convert a representation of a property list (as contained in an
NSData object) into a structure of property list objects in memory. The
NSDeserializer class object itself provides these methods—you don’t create instances of
NSDeserializer. Options to these methods allow you to specify that container objects (arrays or dictionaries) in the resulting graph be mutable or immutable; that deserialization begin at the start of the data or from some position within it; or that deserialization occur lazily, so a property list is deserialized only if it is actually going to be accessed.
