Based on that link I tried it as follows:

   int const binary_archive_flags =
         boost::archive::no_header | boost::archive::no_codecvt;

  filebuf fb;"ofile", ios_base::out);
  binary_oarchive oa(fb, binary_archive_flags);

  clock_t start(clock());
  oa << lst;
  clock_t end(clock());

I didn't discern any improvement to the performance of this
test from adding those flags.


I don't see how that is relevant.
