Boost serialization library


I'm using the Boost serialization library. Iwant to serialize
classes into simple buffers on RAM. There doesn't seem to be a
suitable archiver. Am I missing it? The ones I saw were for files
only. Although implementing one is easy, I would like to have one that
has already been tested...

Your best bet is to join the boost mailing list(s) at www.boost.org. In the
meantime, archives are independent of the particular stream type. You pass a
reference to the desired stream type when you construct an instance of an

std::ostringstr eam lOut;

boost::archive: :xml_oarchive oa( lOut );


boost::archive: :text_oarchive oa( lOut );


boost::archive: :binary_oarchiv e oa( lOut );

If these don't meet your needs, You can use Jonathan Turkanis' IOstream
library to easily wrap other storage/transmission methods. This is/soon to
be part of boost. For example, I've used it to wrap the MS Windows clipboard
to support copy/paste and drag/drop.

Well, fome the looks of it, std::stringstre am does the trick. I'll run
some more checks to be sure...anyway, thanks! I'm a bit embarrased to
admit I didn't know there was such a thing a stringstream...

At the risk of raising the OT ire of some here, I'd like to know what might be done to raise the awareness of the boost libraries. I've found boost and it's libraries invaluable in my work for ~5 years now. The first two postings in this group this morning are addressed almost trivially by using libraries from www.boost.org. IMO, the functionality in boost increases the usability of C++ at least as much as the standard library does. ...

This problem did not occur with prior beta releases of boost-1.33.1 or with the VC8.0 beta. You may want to consider whether the crash of a dependent tool should be allowed to cause the entire VC8 IDE to hang or whether this might be a design defect. Given the recent price...

Hello everyone, I was wondering if any of you have some experience with the boost library. I am having trouble compiling code with it.

I am getting error messages when I try to compile as soon as I put an include to the boost library in the...

I am having a problem deserializing objects from a library when the following conditions exist: 1- The library is strongly named 2- The serialized file was created with version 1.0 of the assembly 3- I am trying to deserialize from an EXE that references version 2.0 of the assembly 4- Both version 1.0 and 2.0 of the assembly reside in the GAC (no policy redirects exist).
