Subject: [boost] [serialization] Portable binary archive

Hi All,

I am using boost serialization to transfer files, because of portability, I
am using:




But in testing I've done, it seems to quadruple the size of the file!

I saw it in serialization test folder:


4 files to work in binary mode (that are very more efficient way):

portable_binary_iarchive.cpp (hpp)

portable_binary_oarchive.cpp (hpp)

My Question:

Why not this files are on the library?

Anyone ever used them in production? Are safe?

How to use? How build serialization lib with these files? I need change bjam
of serialization to include these files?

One more question:

Someone has used Google Protocol Buffer? Could compare with boost
