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. YAML.pm 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 YAML.pm 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.
