# YamlReference: YAML reference implementation

[ library, program, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package contains "the" reference YAML syntax parser (Text.Yaml.Reference), generated directly from the YAML specifications, as well as sample program (yaml2yeast) that allows accessing it from the command line, converting YAML files to YEAST tokens. This is intended to be more of an "executable specification" for YAML rather than an actual basis for YAML tool chains. That said, it is possible to build interesting tools on top of it, such as the yeast2html YAML syntax visualizer (contained in this package), pretty printers, etc. This is a streaming parser that will "immediately" begin to generate output. Updated to be compatible with the final Apr 1, 2009 YAML 1.2 spec.
