2.5 The gnu Smalltalk ObjectDumper

Another gnu Smalltalk-specific class, the ObjectDumper class, allows you to dump objects in a portable, endian-neutral, binary format. Note that you can use the ObjectDumper on ByteArrays too, thanks to another gnu Smalltalk-specific class, ByteStream, which allows you to treat ByteArrays the same way you would treat disk files.

For more information on the usage of the ObjectDumper, look in the class reference.
