Subject: [boost] Comparison of serialization results

I've recently updated a page --
comparing results obtained using Boost Serialization (1.48)
and the C++ Middleware Writer (1.13) on both Linux and Windows7.

There's an archive that has all the test files mentioned on that
page here -- .
In order to build the tests, you would need to build the Boost
Serialization library and an Ebenezer library yourself. There's an
archive on this page that has the Ebenezer library -- .

To summarize the results, the Boost versions range from 1.1 to 3 times
slower than the Ebenezer versions. And the sizes of the Boost
executables range from portly to obese compared to functionally
equivalent Ebenezer executables.

Comments on the how to improve the tests/process/etc. are welcome.
