astropy.io.misc.fnpickle(object, fileorname, protocol=None, append=False)[source]#

Deprecated since version 6.0: Use pickle from standard library, if you must

Pickle an object to a specified file.


The python object to pickle.

fileornamestr or file-like object

The filename or file into which the object should be pickled. If a file object, it should have been opened in binary mode.

protocolint or None

Pickle protocol to use - see the pickle module for details on these options. If None, the most recent protocol will be used.


If True, the object is appended to the end of the file, otherwise the file will be overwritten (if a file object is given instead of a file name, this has no effect).
