What is a PICKLE file?

A PICKLE file is a byte stream created by pickle, a Python module that can serialize objects to files on a disk. This process is known as "pickling." The objects a PICKLE file contains can be "unpickled" at runtime and loaded into program memory.

More Information

Developers creating Python programs can use pickle to convert an object hierarchy into a byte stream. This process is known as serialization. Files created this way are saved as PICKLE or .P files.

Pickling objects allows developers to store and share them over a network more easily. At runtime, a Python program can use the pickle module to retrieve, deserialize, and use the objects a PICKLE file contains.

How to open a PICKLE file

You can use Python pickle (multiplatform) to read the data serialized in a PICKLE file. For more detailed instructions, refer to pickle's documentation.
