YAML Implementation for Perl 6
Branch: master

Conform to latest Perl 6 module specs

latest commit cae4cd437b
@patch patch authored patch committed



This is the pure Perl 6 implementation of YAML.

    use YAML;
    say dump($any_perl_object);


At this point in Perl 6, using YAML is the only way to dump an object
graph to text. The `.perl` method will stop at object nodes, rather than
dumping them further. The `.perl` method also cannot dump cyclic data
graphs. handles these things fine.


At this early point in time, only the dump() operation is supported. You
cannot use this module to load YAML streams into memory objects.

Also, this early version of should only be used for
_visualizing_ (dumping) complex data. The output quite possibly might
not be perfectly valid YAML, so don't use this module for data
communication just yet.


Use `ufo`.

    > cd yaml-pm6
    > ufo
    > make test    # requires testml -
    > make install
