Not long ago a serialization lib was attempted here. Although there was lots
of support for serialization, there was not agreement on what it should do.
Still, the need exists. Since I couldn't find anything that fit my needs, I
threw together the beginning of my own.
At this point, it is very simple and does what I need. Perhaps there is more
general interest in a simple, minimal serialization lib of this sort.
Here are the highlights:
* binary format
* POD are all handled automatically
* classes need a function "DoSave", either static or nonmember (nonintrusive)
* STL containers handled
For now, only POD, std::vector and std::complex are implemented as a demo -
but it seems easy to extend. I had no problem to add RingBuffer<
std::complex<int> >, for example.
