Harald Boegeholz writes in his e-mail message of 1994/03/20

I'd like to know if there is a way to save the current state of GAP in
a file, i.e., the contents of some or all variables. I am doing some
lengthy calculations and would like to save the results for later use.
Unfortunately, the printed representation of most objects is not
enough to recreate the object.

Unfortunately this is impossible right now. Only for some very special
objects, such as PQp records. A generic save function is planned. It is
moderately difficult, and needs support both from the kernel (to find all
objects and save arbitrary objects) and from the library (to save complex
objects, such as domains without saving their operations record).

Hope you can wait till then.
