<title>Introduction</title>
<para>
<trademark>YAML</trademark> (rhymes with <quote>camel</quote>) is a
human-friendly, cross language, Unicode based data serialization language
designed around the common native data structures of agile programming
languages. It is broadly useful for programming needs ranging from
configuration files to Internet messaging to object persistence to data
auditing. Together with the <ulink url="http://www.unicode.org/">Unicode
standard for characters</ulink>, the YAML <ulink
url="http://yaml.org/spec/current.html">specification</ulink> provides
all the information necessary to understand YAML Version 1.1 and to
creating programs that process YAML information.
