MooseX::Storage::Format::Storable - A Storable serialization role
package Point; use Moose; use MooseX::Storage; with Storage('format' => 'Storable'); has 'x' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int'); has 'y' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int'); 1; my $p = Point->new(x => 10, y => 10); ## methods to freeze/thaw into ## a specified serialization format # pack the class with Storable my $storable_data = $p->freeze(); # unpack the storable data into the class my $p2 = Point->thaw($storable_data);
This module will
freeze Moose classes using Storable. It uses
Storable::nfreeze by default so that it can be easily used in IPC scenarios across machines or just locally.
One important thing to note is that this module does not mix well with the IO modules. The structures that
thaw deal with are Storable's memory representation, and (as far as I know) that is not easily just written onto a file. If you want file based serialization with Storable, the please look at the MooseX::Storage::IO::StorableFile role instead.
All complex software has bugs lurking in it, and this module is no exception. If you find a bug please either email me, or add the bug to cpan-RT.
