Thanks for the suggestions! I will see if I can use them to squeeze more out of a solution that I thought was dry as a raisin. BTW, I am not a good golfer, miles behind the great Ton Hospel and Mtv Europe, that's why I keep prodding better golfers to help me. I had thought of using backticks but doubted it is portable to Windows 98 because I think you have to do it like this.

$^O=~Win?`CLS>&2`:`clear>&2`

and I don't think >&2 is portable to Win98. Still, who cares about that? ;)

Corion idly wonders if there is a way to produce ordered .yml files. I want to accept YAML for a configuration file format, but I also want to generate (for debugging/start) a sample configuration file from the current configuration.
[Corion]: Ideally, that configuration file would have some order of the keys, but I'm not sure whether/how YAML supports ordered output.
[Corion]: Basically I have this metadata and generating a purposeful example is much better if the output is ordered in the same way the documentation is ordered
