MooseX::Storage::Format::Storable - A Storable serialization role
with Storage('format' => 'Storable');
has 'x' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int');
has 'y' => (is => 'rw', isa => 'Int');
my $p = Point->new(x => 10, y => 10);
## methods to freeze/thaw into
## a specified serialization format
# pack the class with Storable
my $storable_data = $p->freeze();
# unpack the storable data into the class
my $p2 = Point->thaw($storable_data);
This module will "thaw" and "freeze" Moose classes using
Storable. It uses "Storable::nfreeze" by default so that it can be
easily used in IPC scenarios across machines or just locally.
One important thing to note is that this module does not mix well with the IO
modules. The structures that "freeze" and "thaw" deal with
are Storable's memory representation, and (as far as I know) that is not
easily just written onto a file. If you want file based serialization with
Storable, the please look at the MooseX::Storage::IO::StorableFile role
