You mean fickle? Don't blame poor Noam. Not his fault :-)


bzr branch http://amit.freeshell.org/mirror/export/fickle

last tested on Python 2.4 (originally in 1.5.2). Please send problem reports
to me.

Idea is simple: "rigid functions" get pickled along with their byte code.
By default, functions are considered rigid iff they are defined in __main__

The reasoning:

   Normally both the saver (/transmitting side) and loader (/executing side)
have the same modules installed, so the standard "pickle" works (it actually
saves the module name and function name, then does "import" when loading).
   However, when the function is defined in runtime or by the saver script,
it is not available on the loader, so bytecode must be saved.

   Have fun,
