hello, I am not sure what pickling is, could someone give me a quick synopsis for a newbie?
the reason I ask is that I think it might be useful for an application I am working on. Is pickling the process of storing data for later use? I have a system that measures liquid flow rate and we do regular measurements with flow meters, and I want to setup a statistical quality control system. the fiirst thing I am doing is sorting the measurement into categories and then I will do the stats. anyhow, I will have to store lots of information in a file and access it regularly to read and append new measurements.  Is pickling a good way to store matricies and then pick then up later for use in python?
