    I have meaning to read YAML spec too. My first impression of YAML was that it was garbage.

    When I go to yaml.org I see no rationale for why it was invented. Is it better than XML? A substitute?

    I only see an example

        http://www.yaml.org/start.html [yaml.org]

    Which depending on taste is better or worse than XML. I think it is worse because of & | * >

    • One thing I do like YAML for is doing a Data::Phrasebook type config. I used to have my SQL queries in an XML file but you have to change the > and

      Other than that...I would use XML.
