Storable binary image v5.39 more recent than I am (v2.6)

jithint has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks, I'm using Storable module to store and retrieve data structures. When I run the script I get this error:

"Storable binary image v5.39 more recent than I am (v2.6)"

What does this mean and more importantly, is there any way to get around this? I found another thread here regarding this but it wasn't much help :(. Any help is appreciated.

    That message comes from Storable.xs, in the *magic_check function. The current version of Storable is 2.21. Internally it defines STORABLE_BIN_MAJOR and STORABLE_BIN_MINOR as 2 and 7 respectively. (So your v2.6 would be a slightly older version of Storable.

    The 5.39 comes from the Storable file you're trying to read. Since Storable hasn't gotten close to setting 5.39 as a version, I wonder if the Storable file was created on another system; one with incompatible byteorder or integer-long-pointer sizes.

      Hi I am getting the similar error, Please let me know how to fix it? Error: Storable binary image v34.114 more recent than I am (v2.7) at Thanks Dandu

        upgrade Storable to matching version that reads the file, upgrade storable all around, make sure you're using nstore, move away from storable to a text only format like JSON/YAML

        Which of these solutions do you have trouble using?

    You should upgrade/downgrade Storable until you find a version which will read your file, then serialize to ascii based format (like JSON), then install latest Storable (or your preference) and import your data back

    Suddenly happening to me today, albeit "Storable binary image v61.34 more recent than I am (v2.7)" ... 61.34! Oddity being everything was fine yesterday and only thing I'm aware of having been done was the dev mysql server being restarted (the Storable'd content being in a field in a table there.) This is of no help to anyone, but now I'm searching for comprehension myself.
