Subject: [boost] [Serialization] Query
From: Alapkumar Sinha (Alapkumar.Sinha_at_[hidden])

I am trying to use the serialization library in the following scenario.

1. I create one instance of an object in one process

2. Serialize it either with binary/text archive

3. Then send it through unix local socket to another process where the process deserializes

Whatever examples available, it shows just archiving like below

std::ofstream ofs("filename");
// use it to build and archive
boost::archive::text_oarchive oa(ofs);
// write class instance being pointed to
// to the archive
oa << g;

But after this

1. I would like to copy the archived data to a buffer

2. Send the buffer throught a socket something like

   boost::asio::write(socket, boost::asio::buffer( buffer, sizeof(buffer));

Can someone help on how I can get this done.

One more question: does the call boost::asio::write does serialization internally? If yes, still I would need how to get the buffer as mentioned in the query above a my transmission mechanism might change.
