Before I begin, I apologise if this has been answered already. I did
search the archives but I didn't find a complete answer.
I would like to send and receive MPI messages consisting of the stdlib
(STL) containers -- map, list, etc.
Upon searching the archives, I came upon this  which seemed to
something like what OOMPI aimed for. (I did try OOMPI but I couldn't
find a way to send stdlib containers, building a user defined datatype
but it was too cumbersome and the mailing list and development seems
to be dead).
I also came across a presentation  from PVM/MPI 06, but I could
find any code to go with it. The author seems to suggest the Boost
serialisation library (which does support stdlib containers). Is this
the way to go ? I have never used to Boost before.
Pointers to any other methodologies would also be welcome.
NOWPRINT. NOWPRINT. Clemclone, back to the shadows again.
