What is a PICKLE file?

File created by pickle, a Python module that allows objects to be serialized to files on disk and deserialized back into the program at runtime; saves a byte stream that represents the objects; more often uses the .P extension rather than ".pickle."

More Information

The process of serialization is called "pickling," and deserialization is called "unpickling."
