pst-format.el sets up viewing of Perl Storable format files using the Emacs buffer-file-format mechanism and a dump of the file contents. "pst" stands for "Perl storable" and is the identifier at the start of such files.

# pst-format.el decoded Storable file    -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
# [file in network byte order] [utf8 shown]
use utf8;
$data = [
    "foo" => "something something"

pst-format.el is only meant for looking into Storable when you're curious what some program stores. There's no support as yet for editing and re-writing, though that could be feasible for simple data, but rarely wanted.

pst-format.el is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or up).

The sig is a Gnu PG ascii armoured signature for pst-format.el, generated from my key.

The CPAN module ~/.cpan/Metadata file is a Storable. But don't try to view that with pst-format.el unless you've got a very fast computer. It takes ages to load and even longer to dump as text.
