Learned a new word today, actually, I had heard the word recently but didn't really understand what it meant.

Marshalling the process of transforming the memory representation of an object to a data format suitable for storage or transmission. It is typically used when data must be moved between different parts of a computer program or from one program to another.
Funny how I could be in the "business" for 7 years and never have heard the term. Obviously something I missed out on with my Health Education degree.
