( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

The YAML Specification is independent of the YAML perl package.

I use YAML for all my human-readable configuration files and have even used YAML for this specific purpose. Here's a sample test from the test suite (actions map directly to Test::WWW::Mechanize methods):

- url: BLAH.cgi title_is: My Spiffy Page actions: - submit_form_ok: form_name: magic_form fields: mstat: M mtype: 99 - contains: - Mbr First - Mbr Last - lacks: - Amt Due - submit_form_ok: form_name: magic_form fields: # delcd will still be 'A' mstat: "" amdue: 50 chk_amdue: checked - contains: - Mbr First - Mbr Last - Amt Due

Update: My employer (National Financial Management) has granted me permission to modify and release the test driver for these files on CPAN. Watch for Test::WWW::Mechanize::YAML on CPAN!

Update 2: Released Test::WWW::Mechanize::Driver on CPAN!

Good Day,
