Serialization is changing any object, array or variable into a simple string, so it can be easily transfered over a network or stored into a database. Plus the change back into the original of course. There are many options available, and your best choice is using XML or JSON.
However, if you happen to have a PHP object serialized with the php function… you have a problem when you receive this serialized string from a web request and need to process the data and use the object in a windows visual basic .net application.
So what does My Brain do?
First search for a class or other code sample to do this. But when none is available? Simply write code and start developing my own solution.
