If I a question about saving (pickling) PyTorch tensors.
Let’s take a tensor and make a copy. We end with two exactly the same tensors, e.g. like here:
x = torch.rand(10) y = torch.zeros_like(x) y.copy_(x) # x and y are the same, you can check with: x.ne(y).sum() == 0
We then save them:
torch.save(x, 'x.pt') torch.save(y, 'y.pt')
And check if the binary files differ:
diff x.pt y.pt Binary files x.pt and y.pt differ
They do. Why?
NB: If I do exactly the same for NumPy arrays the pickle files don’t differ.
