protocol : int

Int which indicates which protocol should be used by the pickler, default HIGHEST_PROTOCOL (see [1], paragraph 12.1.2). The possible values for this parameter depend on the version of Python. For Python 2.x, possible values are 0, 1, 2. For Python>=3.0, 3 is a valid value. For Python >= 3.4, 4 is a valid value.A negative value for the protocol parameter is equivalent to setting its value to HIGHEST_PROTOCOL.
