Source code for rpyc.core.vinegar

"""
**Vinegar** ("when things go sour") is a safe serializer for exceptions.
The :data:`configuration parameters <rpyc.core.protocol.DEFAULT_CONFIG>` control
its mode of operation, for instance, whether to allow *old-style* exceptions
(that do not derive from ``Exception``), whether to allow the :func:`load` to
import custom modules (imposes a security risk), etc.

Note that by changing the configuration parameters, this module can be made
non-secure. Keep this in mind.
