Okay, thanks. To write a struct to a stream should really be like
writing a buffer. You point the writer at the memory and tell it how
large it is, and it writes the block to the stream. So it should to be
able to write a pointer-less struct.
That much is good, I can do string mangling/storage another way, probably.
Thanks for the answers Bill and Steven.
