NAME

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

VERSION

       version 0.003

SYNOPSIS

           use CPAN::Meta::YAML;

           # methods for files
           $yaml = CPAN::Meta::YAML->read('META.yml');
           $yaml->write('MYMETA.yml');

           # methods for strings
           $yaml_text = $yaml->write_string;
           $yaml = CPAN::Meta::YAML->read_string($yaml_text);

           # finding the metadata
           my $meta = $yaml->[0];

           # handling errors
           $yaml->write($file)
             or die CPAN::Meta::YAML->errstr;

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.

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: http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=YAML-Tiny
