NAME ^

Data::YAML::Writer - Easy YAML serialisation

VERSION ^

This document describes Data::YAML::Writer version 0.0.6

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Data::YAML::Writer;
    
    my $data = {
        one => 1,
        two => 2,
        three => [ 1, 2, 3 ],
    };
    
    my $yw = Data::YAML::Writer->new;
    
    # Write to an array...
    $yw->write( $data, \@some_array );
    
    # ...an open file handle...
    $yw->write( $data, $some_file_handle );
    
    # ...a string ...
    $yw->write( $data, \$some_string );
    
    # ...or a closure
    $yw->write( $data, sub {
        my $line = shift;
        print "$line\n";
    } );

DESCRIPTION ^

Encodes a scalar, hash reference or array reference as YAML.

In the spirit of YAML::Tiny this is a lightweight, dependency-free YAML writer. While YAML::Tiny is designed principally for working with configuration files Data::YAML concentrates on the transparent round-tripping of YAML serialized Perl data structures.

The syntax produced by Data::YAML::Writer is a subset of YAML. Specifically it is the same subset of YAML that Data::YAML::Reader consumes. See Data::YAML for more information.

INTERFACE ^

new

The constructor new creates and returns an empty Data::YAML::Writer object.

write( $obj, $output )

Encode a scalar, hash reference or array reference as YAML.

    my $writer = sub {
        my $line = shift;
        print SOMEFILE "$line\n";
    };
    
    my $data = {
        one => 1,
        two => 2,
        three => [ 1, 2, 3 ],
    };
    
    my $yw = Data::YAML::Writer->new;
    $yw->write( $data, $writer );

The $output argument may be

  • a reference to a scalar to append YAML to
  • the handle of an open file
  • a reference to an array into which YAML will be pushed
  • a code reference

If you supply a code reference the subroutine will be called once for each line of output with the line as its only argument. Passed lines will have no trailing newline.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
