    I store some test results into a database after I use python
    To pickle them (say, misfiles=['file1','file2'])

    Now I want to display the result on a web page which uses PHP.
    How could the web page unpickle the results and display them?
    Is there a PHP routine that can do unpickle ?

  2. Pickle is Python specific.
    You may be able to write something that can unpickle
    the basic datatypes but I wouldn't bother with it.

    Try to find a language neutral marshaling format
    (yaml? xml? whatever) and access that from both Python and PHP...

    Instead of pickling, maybe you can save the data from python in json
    Then you can read it from PHP.

  4. yaml should be well-suited due to its nature as serialization format, akin
    to pickle.

    wddx format is a workable solution as well
