I have an object with one attribute that is unserializable (due to it’s
containing a Proc).
I am trying to figure out how to do the customized serialization
routines for it.
Assume that my attribute that I don’t want to serialize is named
@transient. If I wanted to make sure that @transient didn’t get dumped,
couldn’t I just do:
@transient = nil
I’m basically wanting to take advantage of the built-in serialization
but exclude one attribute from it.
Would I have to also create a marshal_load method in this case?
Am I required to come up with a custom marshaling and unmarshaling
scheme for all of the N-1 attributes that I do want to have be
serializable, in order to just exclude this one?
