NAME YAML2 - YAML Ain't Markup Language WARNING This is a very early version, and should simply not be used. NOTE The module "YAML2" is intended to soon become the new YAML.pm. It is a frontend API module that does no real work on its own, but instead loads the YAML module you want to use. I'm releasing it to CPAN, so people can start playing with the new API but not upset their production/important code. When YAML2 becomes YAML, the classic YAML.pm will be renamed to YAML::Old. You can get the exact same behavior with: use YAML-Old; for now, you can try: use YAML2-Old; If you use YAML2 now, when it becomes YAML.pm the only thing you will need to do is change 'YAML2' to 'YAML' in the 'use YAML' line of your code. In other words, when I make the "switch", all I will do is "s/YAML2/YAML/g" and remove this NOTE section from the documentation. SYNOPSIS use YAML2; # Use the best YAML implementation available use YAML2-XS; # Use only YAML::XS, but with standard YAML2 API use YAML2-XS,-Perl; # Use either YAML::XS or YAML::Perl my $y = yaml; # Create a new YAML object. Same as: my $y = YAML->new->implementation('YAML::XS'); $YAML::UseCode = 1; # Old global flags still work, but consistently # between implementations Dump Load $object; # Old Dump Load interface still exists yaml->dump($object); # New dump interface yaml->load($yaml); # New load interface yaml->indent(4) # Dump to a file with various options ->file('foo.yaml') ->use_code ->dump(@objects); DESCRIPTION YAML2.pm is the front end module API module for all of the various backend YAML implementation modules. The current YAML implementation modules are: - YAML::Old - The old, "classic", woefully inadequate YAML.pm - YAML::XS - The newer very fast and very correct YAML module - YAML::Syck - The older very fast but less correct YAML module - YAML::Perl - The Perl port of PyYaml - YAML::Tiny - Adam's Tiny subset of YAML module All of these implementation modules use the familiar Dump/Load API. YAML2 continues to support this simple API, but also exposes newer, more powerful APIs. Note that not all of the API options can be used with every implementation module. YAML2 will attempt to let you know when you are doing something that is not supported. When you "use" YAML2, you can let it choose an appropriate YAML implementation, or you can specify which one(s) should be used. YAML2 will load the appropriate implemenation module or it will die with the appropriate error msg. use YAML2-XS; # Use only the YAML::XS implementation use YAML2-XS,-Perl; # Use either YAML::XS implementation use YAML; # Same as: use YAML-XS,-Perl,-Syck,-Old,-Tiny; EXPORT BEHAVIOR Dump/Load API AUTHOR Ingy döt Net <firstname.lastname@example.org> COPYRIGHT Copyright (c) 2008.
