Discussion RoomCategory: Interview QuestionWhat is Pickle in python?
Ashly asked 4 years ago

The pickle module implements a fundamental, but powerful algorithm for serializing and de-serializing a Python object structure. “Pickling” is the process whereby a Python object hierarchy is converted into a byte stream, and “unpickling” is the inverse operation, whereby a byte stream is converted back into an object hierarchy. Pickling (and unpickling) is alternatively known as “serialization”, “marshalling,” or “flattening”, however, to avoid confusion, the terms used here are “pickling” and “unpickling”.
