Unpickling methods¶
Python saves objects by providing a pair (f, data)
such that f(data)
reconstructs the object. This module collects the loading (_unpickling_ in
Python terminology) functions for Sage’s matroids.
Note
The reason this code was separated out from the classes was to make it
play nice with lazy importing of the Matroid()
and matroids
keywords.

sage.matroids.unpickling.
unpickle_basis_matroid
(version, data)¶ Unpickle a BasisMatroid.
Pickling is Python’s term for the loading and saving of objects. Functions like these serve to reconstruct a saved object. This all happens transparently through the
load
andsave
commands, and you should never have to call this function directly.INPUT:
version
– an integer, expected to be 0data
– a tuple(E, R, name, BB)
in whichE
is the groundset of the matroid,R
is the rank,name
is a custom name, andBB
is the bitpacked list of bases, as pickled by Sage’sbitset_pickle
.
OUTPUT:
A matroid.
Warning
Users should never call this function directly.
EXAMPLES:
sage: from sage.matroids.advanced import * sage: M = BasisMatroid(matroids.named_matroids.Vamos()) sage: M == loads(dumps(M)) # indirect doctest True
