in thread how do i parse a yaml set with perl

Thanks for the quick reply.
I understand.
This file is created by a java program using the snakeyaml library. I will ask them to change the set to a hash where the values are 1.

    The order doesn't matter, but the elements are also simple values... why not make it an array?

    If you're making it a hash, then your values are used as the keys of the hash and you have to make up and store dummy values to complete the hash structure. That's confusing and inefficient.

      I use it internally as a set. It is true that i can just represent it as an array and internally convert it to a hash. This is a good point
