in thread storing pre-compiled binary regexes

Six years on and 5.10 is with us. Is it now possible to serialise and store the binary compiled version of the regex ?

    OK, not sure if I am doing something wrong but from my testing Perl 5.10 can not do this either

    This is perl, v5.10.0 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (with 3 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
    Here is an attempt to store some compiled regex
    #!/usr/bin/perl #create the Storable file use warnings; use Storable; use Data::Dumper; my %sigs; while (<DATA>){ chomp; ($name,$value) = split(/\s+=\s+/,$_); next unless $value; $sigs{$name}= qr/$value/; } store(\%sigs, 'z1.bin') or die "Can't store %a in z1.bin !\n"; print Dumper \%sigs; exit;
    And here I try to read it back again
    #!/usr/bin/perl #read the Storable file #use strict; use warnings; use Storable; use Data::Dumper; my %sigs = %{retrieve('z1.bin')} or die "Unable to retrieve from +n:$!\n" ; print Dumper \%sigs; exit; __DATA__ 1_Friday = Friday 2_random = [Rr]andom 3_catch any = .*
    These are the results of the two dumps:
    C:\Perl_5_10\play>..\bin\perl $VAR1 = { '3_catch any' => qr/(?-xism:.*)/, '2_random' => qr/(?-xism:[Rr]andom)/, '1_Friday' => qr/(?-xism:Friday)/ }; C:\Perl_5_10\play>..\bin\perl $VAR1 = { '3_catch any' => qr/Regexp=SCALAR(0x1a6bca4)/, '2_random' => qr/Regexp=SCALAR(0x1a7c90c)/, '1_Friday' => qr/Regexp=SCALAR(0x1c47c7c)/ };
    if I try to use the read back regex they fail to match

Corion idly wonders if there is a way to produce ordered .yml files. I want to accept YAML for a configuration file format, but I also want to generate (for debugging/start) a sample configuration file from the current configuration.
[Corion]: Ideally, that configuration file would have some order of the keys, but I'm not sure whether/how YAML supports ordered output.
[Corion]: Basically I have this metadata and generating a purposeful example is much better if the output is ordered in the same way the documentation is ordered
