But I still have the feeling I didn't get the whole idea correctly; especially when I see ambrus' solution.

If you want to keep the linebreak in the "p_agrs" line, then tell perl not to chomp it.

Example:

perl -wpe 'if ( m/\bremotely\b/ ... m/\bp_agrs\b/ ) { chomp unless m/\bp_agrs\b/ }'

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
