Load pickled Python objects from a file.

Almost like pickle.load(open(path)), but also loads object saved with older versions of Eelbrain, and allows using a system file dialog to select a file.


path (Path) – Path to a pickled file. If omitted, a system file dialog is shown. If the user cancels the file dialog, a RuntimeError is raised.


If you see ValueError: unsupported pickle protocol: 4, the pickle file was saved with Python 3; in order to make pickles backwards-compatible, use pickle() with protocol=2.
