( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi all I have a large data structure that I want to store to disk. I was planning to use the excellent Storable.pm module, however on a closer look it doesn't work with references to CODE.
i.e @database=( { "group" =>"1", "pattern" =>'lizard', "function" =>sub { print "hello\n"; }, }, );
From the Storable.pl docs.....'You can't store GLOB, CODE, FORMLINE, etc... If you can define semantics for those operations, feel free to enhance Storable so that it can deal with them.' Its that last bit that's caught my interest. I looks like I can define semantics so that Storable can cope. Does anyone know what this means ? Can any one point me to an example of a modification like this. Thanks in advance jeff

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
