NAME

YAML::Any - Pick a YAML implementation and use it.  

STATUS

WARNING: This module will soon be deprecated. The plan is that YAML.pm itself will act like an Any module.  

SYNOPSIS

    use YAML::Any;
    $YAML::Indent = 3;
    my $yaml = Dump(@objects);

 

DESCRIPTION

There are several YAML implementations that support the Dump/Load API. This module selects the best one available and uses it.  

ORDER

Currently, YAML::Any will choose the first one of these YAML implementations that is installed on your system:
YAML::XS
YAML::Syck
YAML::Old
YAML
YAML::Tiny
 

OPTIONS

If you specify an option like:

    $YAML::Indent = 4;

And YAML::Any is using YAML::XS, it will use the proper variable: $YAML::XS::Indent.  

SUBROUTINES

Like all the YAML modules that YAML::Any uses, the following subroutines are exported by default:
Dump
Load

and the following subroutines are exportable by request:

DumpFile
LoadFile
 

METHODS

YAML::Any provides the following class methods.
"YAML::Any->order"
This method returns a list of the current possible implementations that YAML::Any will search for.
"YAML::Any->implementation"
This method returns the implementation the YAML::Any will use. This result is obtained by finding the first member of YAML::Any->order that is either already loaded in %INC or that can be loaded using "require". If no implementation is found, an error will be thrown.
 

EXAMPLES

 

DumpFile and LoadFile

Here is an example for "DumpFile":

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use strict;
    use warnings;

    use YAML::Any qw(DumpFile);

    my $ds =
    {
        array => [5,6,100],
        string => "Hello",
    };

    DumpFile("hello.yml", $ds);

When run, this creates a file called "hello.yml" in the current working directory, with the following contents.

    ---
    array:
    - 5
    - 6
    - 100
    string: Hello

In turn, the following "LoadFile" example, loads the contents from there and accesses them:

    #!/usr/bin/perl

    use strict;
    use warnings;

    use YAML::Any qw(LoadFile);

    my ($ds) = LoadFile("hello.yml");

    print "String == '", $ds->{string}, "'\n";

Assuming "hello.yml" exists, and is as created by the "DumpFile" example, it prints:

    $ perl load.pl
    String == 'Hello'
    $
