I'm really confused with all those classes out there: basic_filebuf, basic_fstream, basic_ios, ...

could you please give me a link to somewhere to illustrate a visual presentation or something of all these classes?

I have a record like this:
struct RECORD
    unsigned int uiID;
    string strWord;

and I'd like to serialize my records to/from a file. which class best suit me?

Solution 1

None of them :)
Have a look at Protocol Buffer Basics: C++[^]

It will make things a bit easier ... it uses the ios library, but takes care of the serialization

Or just use fstream[^] directly and roll your own serialization code.

Best regards
