Excellent !

Could you please double check the file test_tools.hpp in
libs/serialization/test to see what I had to do to make a crude but
effective substitute for what I needed. I seem to remember a lot of
aggravation in dealing with different compile implementations.

Now that I've written the above, I wonder if a better string_stream might
not be better in many cases. My files are small. When I looked at string
stream before, it didn't handle codecvt facets which made me skeptical about
using for my tests. Hmmm - maybe codecvt facets don't make any sense in
string stream - more food for thought.

In any case, your understanding of what I'm asking for is correct. Thanks a

Robert Ramey
