PyYAML - The next generation YAML parser and emitter for Python.

To install, type 'python setup.py install'.

By default, the setup.py script checks whether LibYAML is installed
and if so, builds and installs LibYAML bindings.  To skip the check
and force installation of LibYAML bindings, use the option '--with-libyaml':
'python setup.py --with-libyaml install'.  To disable the check and
skip building and installing LibYAML bindings, use '--without-libyaml':
'python setup.py --without-libyaml install'.

When LibYAML bindings are installed, you may use fast LibYAML-based
parser and emitter as follows:

    >>> yaml.load(stream, Loader=yaml.CLoader)
    >>> yaml.dump(data, Dumper=yaml.CDumper)

PyYAML includes a comprehensive test suite.  To run the tests,
type 'python setup.py test'.
