Hi there.

Has any of you found a generic method of making boost::any serializable? The net doesn't provide anything more than a couple of unfinished ideas, as far as I have searched.

Exampla code:
#include <boost/any.hpp>
#include <boost/config.hpp>
#include <boost/archive/xml_iarchive.hpp>
#include <boost/archive/xml_oarchive.hpp>

int main()
   boost::any a;
   a = ...[insert some value here];
   std::ofstream ofs("C:\\fiel.xml");
   boost::archive::xml_oarchive oa(ofs);
   return 0;
Of course, one could modify boost::any. That's not my first option, to be honest.

Any ideas, thoughts?
