NAME

Tree::File::YAML - (DEPRECATED) store a data structure in a file tree (using YAML)

VERSION

version 0.112

SYNOPSIS

 use Tree::File::YAML;

 my $tree = Tree::File::YAML->new($treerot);

 die "death mandated" if $tree->get("/master/die")

 print "Hello, ", $tree->get("/login/user/name");

 $tree->set("/login/user/lastlogin", time);
 $tree->write;

DESCRIPTION

This module stores configuration in a series of YAML files spread across a directory tree, and provides uniform access to the data structure.

It can load a single YAML file or a directory tree containing YAML files as leaves. The tree's branches can be returned as data structures or YAML documents, and the tree can be modified and rewritten. Directory-based branches can be collapsed back into files and file-based branches can be exploded into directories.

For more information, see Tree::File.

METHODS

$tree->load_file($filename)

This method loads the given filename as YAML, croaks if it contains more than one section, and otherwise returns the contained data.

$tree->as_yaml()

This method returns the entire tree of data (returned by the data method), serialized into YAML.

$tree->write_file($filename, $data)

This method writes the given data, as YAML, to the given filename.

TODO

  • symlinks and references
