The base class Type defines the basic object type. Any descendant of Type that defines appropriate Read and Write methods can be stored or restored by any class derived from the TypeIO class. Also, the Type class defines a base set of type information data and functions, by using the TYPEOF and IMPLEMENT_TYPEOF macros. Subclasses of Type, or other types, can use the TYPEOF or STATIC_TYPEOF macros to define their own type information.
