Tools to inspect and analyze Ruby's Marshal serialization format. Supports the Marshal 4.8 format which is emitted by ruby 1.8 through 2.x.
To dump the structure of a Marshal stream:
ruby -rpp -rmarshal/structure \ -e 'pp Marshal::Structure.load Marshal.dump "hello"'
require 'pp' require 'marshal/structure' ms = Marshal::Structure.new Marshal.dump %w[hello world] # print the stream structure pp ms.structure # show how many allocations are required to load the stream p ms.count_allocations
gem install marshal-structure
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the RDoc.
