It'll be with 5.8.0 when it comes out.

You can find it in


Here's an index of all the modules.

Storable's been around since 1997.

I originally wanted to use Data::Dumper to achieve a deep copy of
an object, but it required an eval and some other trickery that
in the end Storable's dclone accomplished with one call.

Use CPAN :) I'd rather use Storable for cleanliness of the code,
but if enough people have an issue with it, I'll look into using
Data::Dumper. It's not as ideal, but Data::Dumper has been
shipping with Perl forever.
