Played a little bit with the Classes unit.
Don't really see any benefit over justin writing records directly.
Am I missing something?

Also when reading back, on both cases(class or directly using records) it 
seems I need to use fixed length records. At least based on the examples I 
have seen so far. Is there a way to save variable length records and then 
read them back?
