pickle5 -- A backport of the pickle 5 protocol (PEP 574)
This package backports all features and APIs added in the
in Python 3.8.3, including the
PEP 574 additions. It should
work with Python 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.
Basic usage is similar to the
pickle module, except that the module
to be imported is
import pickle5 as pickle pb = pickle.PickleBuffer(b"foo") data = pickle.dumps(pb, protocol=5) assert pickle.loads(data) == b"foo"
Detailed documentation can be found in PEP 574 and the standard pickle documentation.
