can pythonista use pickles?

I was not able to rename the file but I created a new file and cut and paste the text of z_dict_words.py into the newly created z_dict_words.pkl. I then ran the code and pythonista was not able to load the pickle file. This is the error message I got:
File "/private/var/mobile/Containers/Shared/AppGroup/D4D2C25F-316F-47DF-8CFF-84E670A3283D/Pythonista3/Documents/main_loop.py", line 163, in get_result
dictionary = pickle.load(pkl_file)
_pickle.UnpicklingError: invalid load key, '\xc2'.
These lines are 150 - 163 in my code:
def get_result(one_sent, user = "", print_type="40", order=, get_words_used=0): global words_used total_time = time.time() if one_sent == 'a': proof_type, print_type, get_words_used, order = parameters() pkl_file = open(user + 'zz_claims.pkl', 'rb') test_sent = pickle.load(pkl_file) pkl_file.close() elif one_sent != "": test_sent = one_sent else: pkl_file = open(user + 'zz_claims.pkl', 'rb') test_sent = pickle.load(pkl_file) pkl_file.close() pkl_file = open(user + 'z_dict_words.pkl', 'rb') dictionary = pickle.load(pkl_file) pkl_file.close()
I'm attaching a screenshot so as to demonstrate that the file is in my script library

@bobsmith76 Sorry but I can't help you:I don't know pickle.
Hoping somebody will help you
what about json? can pythonista handle json?

@bobsmith76 pickles are not text, they are binary. copy/paste from a text file wont work.
json and yaml are good alternatives.
or, just use file import of a zipped pkl.
or, post the file in a gist, or on github, and use stash git or wget to retrieve.
If I import a zipped pkl do I have to unzip it? If so how?

@bobsmith76 Tap on it and then extract archive
it automatically adds the .py extension to all files. so z_dict_words.pkl becomes z_dict_words.pkl.py. how do i rename files?
