Is this correct?

If you want to send complex data structures, portably between different
programming language environments and processor architectures.
This is not a goal of ZeroMQ and is explicitly left to other libraries and

| 2.  Why use memcpy is bad or not suited?


are better alternatives in C++ and as, or more efficient than ::memcpy
(they in fact delegate, as inline code to ::memcpy if that is the fastest
way to perform the copy).

your example would read -

#include <algorithm>


std::copy_n(result.c_str(), result.size() + 1, request.data());


std::copy(result.begin(), result.size(), request.data());
