UPDATE: Problem solved with YAML-0.39

Hi, up to now, I often used YAML to make data dumps, because it gave a nicely indented printout. But I just ran into a situation where YAML drops data on it's printout, but Data::Dumper dosn't. What I am doing is converting a 1 meg xml file to a user-friendly-hash and dumping the hash.

Here is a damaged portion of the YAML dump, the keys begin with SH, followed by a sub hash. I've commented where the YAML dump fails, it truncates the previous key's "stop" and "writer" subhash, and the next key is truncated to ':'. Data::Dumper will not make this error.

Has anyone seen this sort of thing before?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
