  • As a user (i.e. not a parser writer) I still very much prefer YAML over JSON most of the time due to it being more readable.

    But yeah, unfortunately many of the earlier Perl YAML parsers do not behave in a standard (YAML-ish) way, not to mention used to crash a lot too.

    For YAML::Syck, there's $YAML::Syck::ImplicitTyping = 1; which IIRC was turned on by default in some previous release but then Audrey reverted it back to 0 to avoid compatibility break.

    How about everybody just use YAML::XS, then?
