Re^2: Can I serialize an object and have it remember it's type?
in thread Can I serialize an object and have it remember it's type?
Be forewarned - Storable does not provide forward/backward compatability. That is, if you upgrade your perl, there is a significant chance that all your stored objects will be unretrievable. If you switch platforms, it's almost guaranteed (use nstore - that may help).
At least, that was my experience with Storable, oh so many years ago. I'd be happy to hear that has changed.
