Yes, it's called Marshaling.

# Create a trivial object
a  Object to save"

# Save it to stored_object
stored_object  arshal.dump(a)

# Destroy "a"
a  il

# Restore the object
a  arshal.load(stored_object)

You can read more about it here:
http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/Marshal.html

Ruby makes it a breeze to implement. You can also use YAML to save your
Marshaled object data via YAML's dump and load methods.  See more about that
here: http://ruby-doc.org/core/classes/YAML.html

Hope this helps!
