#' Save xgboost model to R's raw vector,
#' user can call xgb.load.raw to load the model back from raw vector
#'
#' Save xgboost model from xgboost or xgb.train
#'
#' @param model the model object.
#' @param raw_format The format for encoding the booster.  Available options are
#' \itemize{
#'     \item \code{json}: Encode the booster into JSON text document.
