C++ library for easily serializing a wide variety of objects

s11n an abbreviation for serialization is an Open Source project focused on the generic serialization of objects i.e., object persistence in the C++ programming language.

The project’s flagship library, appropriately named libs11n, can easily serialize all manner of PODs Plain Old Data types, most STL containers, and user-defined Serializable types. By taking advantage of relatively new, advanced C++ techniques s11n turns this formerly-difficult task into child’s play. It supports literally hundreds of millions of combinations of standard containers out of the box. libs11n is 100 data-format agnostic, and currently includes support for many formats, including 3 XML flavours. As far as i am aware, this exceeds support provided by any other serialization framework, regardless of the implementation language!
