I created some data and stored it several times like this:
with open('filename', 'a') as f: pickle.dump(data, f)
Every time the size of file increased, but when I open file
with open('filename', 'rb') as f: x = pickle.load(f)
I can see only data from the last time.
How can I correctly read file?
Pickle serializes a single object at a time, and reads back a single object –
the pickled data is recorded in sequence on the file.
If you simply do
pickle.load you should be reading the first object serialized into the file (not the last one as you’ve written).
After unserializing the first object, the file-pointer is at the beggining
of the next object – if you simply call
pickle.load again, it will read that next object – do that until the end of the file.
objects =  with (open("myfile", "rb")) as openfile: while True: try: objects.append(pickle.load(openfile)) except EOFError: break
