This code provides two global functions, WriteVariantToStream and ReadVariantFromStream,
that enable you to read and write a variant to a stream. In addition, there are two other
global functions, ReadVariantFromBlob and WriteVariantToBlob, for reading and writing
a variant to a BLOB.
Here are some of the main advantages of these functions:
Uses any given IStream to stream the Variant into and out of.
Data is streamed in efficient binary form.
Stream is versioned for backwards compatibility.
Supports arbitrary size and arbitrary dimension safe-arrays.
Object streaming is supported if the object in variant supports
All code is in one header file (VariantStream.h) and only two routines are
exposed: WriteVariantToStream and ReadVariantFromStream.
Comes with supporting test code that tests the header file -- in case code
Does not use C++ exception handling. Test project has EH flag
Doesn't use the CRT.
Does not use any Direct-To-COM (VC++'s comdef.h, such as _variant_t, _bstr_t,
Power and Automation Equipment makers face constrained CAPEX, equipment interoperability issues, and process inefficiencies. However, they can take advantage of secure Internet of Things (IoT) intelligent devices and systems to make better business decisions around asset utilization and performance, while simultaneously optimizing equipment interoperability and services efficiency. Watch this brief video to see how you can unlock the full potential of your assets and value chain.
U.S. companies are desperately trying to recruit and hire skilled software engineers and developers, but there's simply not enough quality talent to go around. In response, companies often resort to inferior solutions -- hiring substandard developers and engineers, recruiting talent on a part-time or temporary basis, poaching people from competitors, or burdening an already stressed IT staff for more of their labor. Fortunately, there's a better solution. Read this white paper to learn the business value of …
