[GiNaC-list] writing symbols and expressions into binary files

i just wanted to add that "archive_ex" and "unarchive_ex" works only and
only for single expressions. If someone wants to save lists of matrixes like
i needed, you can use "archive_node" which is great too.
it can save you lots of time
best regards,
