in reply to Perl Storable problem (i Think)

Apart from your current problem: Are you aware that the Storable data structures keep changing, and that Storable provides only minimal compatibility for different versions of Storable? As soon as client or server are upgraded, you may run into compatibility problems.

You may need to think about a different storage format. JSON, XML, YAML could be alternatives that do not have those kind of compatibility problems, and they even work with different languages.


Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)

    Thank you for the insight. I will look into YAML for this project. Thanks to all who have provided advice.
