JSON or binary stream? Delphi 2010: How to save a whole record to a file? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/03

A while back I proposed using JSON in order to [WayBack] Delphi 2010: How to save a whole record to a file? – Stack Overflow.

There is also a native solution using streaming (which by now has moved to [WayBack] GitHub – KrystianBigaj/kblib: Automatically exported from with main source file [WayBack] kblib/uKBDynamic.pas), but be aware that unlike JSON:

  • Streams are not fully compatible between Delphi Unicode and Delphi non-Unicode (they are if you limit yourself to AnsiString)
  • Streams are not compatible between x64 and x86 unless you use kdoCPUArchCompatibility and provide additional compatibility (read comments on kdoCPUArchCompatibility)

The main file from my proposed solution has since then move
