Annotation of pkgsrc/textproc/p5-YAML-Tiny/DESCR, Revision 188.8.131.52
1.1 abs 1: YAML::Tiny is a perl class for reading and writing YAML-style files,
2: written with as little code as possible, reducing load time and
3: memory overhead.
5: Most of the time it is accepted that Perl applications use a lot
6: of memory and modules. The ::Tiny family of modules is specifically
7: intended to provide an ultralight and zero-dependency alternative
8: to many more-thorough standard modules.
10: This module is primarily for reading human-written files (like
11: simple config files) and generating very simple human-readable
12: files. Note that I said human-readable and not geek-readable. The
13: sort of files that your average manager or secretary should be able
14: to look at and make sense of.
16: YAML::Tiny does not generate comments, it won't necesarily preserve
17: the order of your hashes, and it will normalise if reading in and
18: writing out again.
20: It only supports a very basic subset of the full YAML specification.
