NAME

CPAN::Meta::YAML - Read and write a subset of YAML for CPAN Meta files

VERSION

version 0.014

SYNOPSIS

    use CPAN::Meta::YAML;

    # reading a META file
    open $fh, "<:utf8", "META.yml";
    $yaml_text = do { local $/; <$fh> };
    $yaml = CPAN::Meta::YAML->read_string($yaml_text)
      or die CPAN::Meta::YAML->errstr;

    # finding the metadata
    $meta = $yaml->[0];

    # writing a META file
    $yaml_text = $yaml->write_string
      or die CPAN::Meta::YAML->errstr;
    open $fh, ">:utf8", "META.yml";
    print $fh $yaml_text;

DESCRIPTION

This module implements a subset of the YAML specification for use in reading and writing CPAN metadata files like META.yml and MYMETA.yml. It should not be used for any other general YAML parsing or generation task.

NOTE: META.yml (and MYMETA.yml) files should be UTF-8 encoded. Users are responsible for proper encoding and decoding. In particular, the read and write methods do not support UTF-8 and should not be used.

SUPPORT

This module is currently derived from YAML::Tiny by Adam Kennedy. If there are bugs in how it parses a particular META.yml file, please file a bug report in the YAML::Tiny bugtracker: https://github.com/Perl-Toolchain-Gang/YAML-Tiny/issues
