partial serialize/deserialize a structure
I have a large number of strcture instances, the I can not have all of them in memory. So I have the idea of serialize/deserialize partial of them to/from disk. The operation I need on these structure instances is to enumerate elements one by one, and I want to provide applications which use this interface to enumerate elements be transparent to how and which parts of structure instances is written/read to/from disk -- and the application only will feel read from memory.
I am wondering whether there are any samples/tutorials to make a reference?
thanks in advance,
