Dear Forum,

wouldn't it be nice to have commands such as
Save(<filename>, <object>);
with which one could save any Gap-object to a file and load it again into
another Gap-session? There are similar commands described in the manual for
certain objects, but I couldn't find an entry for general objects. Does anybody
know how to program such a routine?

A similar command could be
that saves all variables defined at the time to resume the session later with
the UNIX-command
gap -session <filename>
The solution to this problem is probably beyond simply programming new

I am grateful for any hints.
