SaveBinaryData - Serializing an object to file in binary format

' Serialize an object to file in binary format
' It can handle types that the SOAP serialization can't
' Requires:
'   Imports System.IO
'   Imports System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary
Private Sub SaveBinaryData(ByVal path As String, ByVal o As Object)
    ' Open a file stream for output.
    Dim fs As FileStream = New FileStream(path, FileMode.Create)
    ' Create a binary formatter for this stream
    Dim bf As New BinaryFormatter()
    ' Serialize the array to the file stream, and close the stream
    bf.Serialize(fs, o)
    fs.Close()
End Sub


' Note: refer to the SOAP version of this routine for an example of its usage,
'  as they work the same way
