in reply to freeze and thaw ?

freeze creates a binary image of a data structure, and thaw takes that image and turns it back into a copy of the original data structure.

That way you can easily exchange non-trivial data structures between two perl processes, or store one and retrieve it later in a different run of the same perl script.
