Maybe I'm just too stupid to see it, but from looking at the
documentation I can't see how, e.g. I would write an oarchive
for a single double value
for an array of doubles. As I see it, and have implemented it in my
serialization library that I would love to replace by a boost one,
we need additional virtual functions for (de)serializing arrays of
the basic data types.
Please tell me if I am wrong and how to manage this using your library.
