Experimental backport of the pickle 5 protocol (PEP 574)
PEP 574 is still in draft phase. Everything published here, including the exposed APIs, is subject to change in the future.
This package backports the features and APIs added in PEP 574. It should work with Python 3.6 and 3.7.
Basic usage is similar to the pickle module, except that the module to be imported is pickle5:
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.
