Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help. I'm writing a program that analyses and processes audio in Ruby, using the audio/sndfile library and narray. Currently I'm analysing a file and storing the analysis data, an Audio::Sound class, directly into a file like so: sf = Audio::Soundfile.open(self.full_filename) an_file = sf.readf_float(sf.frames) File.open(self.full_filename + ".anl","w") do |out| out << an_file end So now I have the data in this file stored directly as it is stored in the an_file NArray. My problem is that I want to crack open this file and load it directly into a an Audio::Sound NArray. File.read and IO.read seem to load the data as one giant string, even if I've previously declared that the variable i'm loading it into is an Audio::Sound. Is there no way to simply dump the data as-is? Thanks

Having been able to declutter my brain I'm guessing I maybe should use the Marshal module to serialize the data before saving, then use Marshal to load it in situ?
