MooseX::Storage::Format::Storable - A Storable serialization role
with Storage('format' => 'Storable');
has 'x' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int');
has 'y' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int');
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 "thaw" and "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 "freeze" and "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
