A Simple Logging Archive Class

The purpose of this example help clarify the usage of the Archive Concept so that one can implement his own archive classes. simple_log_archive.hpp implements a simple but useful archive class. This class can be used to send any serializable types on an output text stream in a readable format. Usage of this facility is trivially easy:

#include "simple_log_archive.hpp"
// display the complete schedule
simple_log_archive log(std::cout);
log << schedule;
and it produces the following output

 count 6
   driver bob
   hour 6
   minute 24
  second -> 
    count 3
    item -> 
      degrees 34
      minutes 135
      seconds 52.56
      degrees 134
      minutes 22
      seconds 78.3
