Subject: Re: [Boost-users] [Serialization] Load an object from the base pointer

I've seen the following:
ar & b;
But that doesn't quite help me. All of our objects come from a memory
pool and I either need to know ahead of time which object to allocate or
I need to pass an allocator to the archive so that it can get the memory
from the pool.
Are either of these possible? Also, in the above example, how does the
archive allocate the memory for 'b'? Does it use new? Or does it have
it's own pre-allocated store?

This is explained in the documentation and illustrated by the demos and
In fact, you can even build a progam which will be able to de-serialize
in DLLS which have yet to be created.

How can I read in a from a stream when I don't know the exact
type I will be getting? All objects I receive will derive from the same
base class, but I won't know when I receive the stream what the derived
type will be and therefore I can't create it in advance (like in the
class derived1 : public base
class derived2 : public base
// Get a stream from somewhere
boost::archive::binary_iarchive ia( instream );
is >> // derived1 or derived2???
