Subject: Re: [Boost-users] Turn off versioning in Serialization
From: Brian Nantz (brian_at_[hidden])

Thanks for the quick reply.

I was able to turn all the headers off but there is still one number (which seems to be thre string length) that I can not turn off. If this is unable to be turned off then I will proceed to the Case Study you mentioned.

This is the serialization library version. When you create the
archive you can specify the flag no_header to suppress it.

THis sounds like your talking about class version - which
is different from the above. this can be suppressed on a class by
class basis. in the documentation

    Serializable Concept
        Class Serialization Traits
            Implementation level.

Try looking at
