Well, I tried to ask this question once, but got no response, so
I'll try to put it more simply: I'm trying to write objects out and
read them in in a binary file to increase speed and save space. I'm
using generic functions on the built-in classes/structure classes to
handle the type specific encoding/decoding. I'm using (write-byte..)
and (read-byte..) to do the file I/O. I like the generic function
stuff; MCL seems pretty efficient in handling the method dispatch. I
was wondering, though, if there is a better/faster way to actually do
the I/O? I don't care if it's MCL-specific. Any suggestions?
