I was using my own home-grown one. I wrote it before I started using boost
though. I decided to try it out with boost::shared_ptr and here is what I

c:\Boost\boost_1_32_0\boost\serialization\access.hpp(106): error C2039:
'serialize' : is not a member of 'boost::shared_ptr<T>'

I tried searching on boost shared_ptr serialize but came up empty. Any
suggestions? Thanks.
