Just create a class that implements I serializable.  

Then create a function Read() that returns your object using the sample above.

the example you mentioned doesn't go into specifics about how to serialize the object into a flat delimited string.  most of the example i saw always serialize to a binary format, i.e. data.dat.  thanks.
