Boost-like serialization. Targeted at those that might be interested in designing their own simple or more sophisticated serializers


  • Fundamental types
  • Arrays and Dynamic Arrays
  • Pointers and Dynamic Pointers
  • std::string
  • STL Containers: Vectors, List, Maps, Multimaps, etc
  • std::unique_ptr and std::shared_ptr
  • std::pair
  • Classes
  • Polymorphic Classes
    • Note: Classes and Polymorphic Classes require that a 'Serialize' member or non-member method, taking a reference to either of the archives, be defined.

      Example usage:

      File fileHandle("serialze.txt"); Serialization::Out archive(fileHandle); archive & someInt & someBool & someChar & someFloat; archive << someClass << someString << someVector << someArray << somePointer; archive.DynamicArray(someDynamicArray, someDynamicArraySize); archive.Pointer(someDynamicPointer); archive.RegisterType<someType>(); archive.BaseObject<someBaseType>(someDerivedObject);

      Feedback is highly appreciated

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
