NAME

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


VERSION

       version 0.018


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>
