I'm trying to write a save/serialization system for my game, and I want to be able to serialize in binary mode. How can I do that? I know how to create binary ifstream and ofstream objects. Is it possible to do the same with regular ostream and istream?

The "binary" flag just means that newlines aren't translated to the platform specific sequence during output. You can use istream::read() and ostream::write() to serialize byte data.
