SYNOPSIS

    my $emitter = YAML::PP::Emitter->new(
        indent => 4,
    );

    $emitter->init;

    $emitter->stream_start_event;
    $emitter->document_start_event({ implicit => 1 });
    $emitter->sequence_start_event;
    $emitter->scalar_event({ value => $input, style => $style });
    $emitter->sequence_end_event;
    $emitter->document_end_event({ implicit => 1 });
    $emitter->stream_end_event;

    my $yaml = $emitter->writer->output;
    $emitter->finish;

DESCRIPTION

The emitter emits events to YAML. It provides methods for each event type. The arguments are mostly the same as the events from YAML::PP::Parser.

METHODS

        indent => 4,
    );

indent, set_indent
