NAME

Catmandu::Importer::YAML - Package that imports YAML data

SYNOPSIS

    # From the command line
    $ catmandu convert YAML to JSON < data.yaml
    # In a Perl script
    use Catmandu;
    my $importer = Catmandu->importer('YAML',file => "/foo/bar.yaml");
    my $n = $importer->each(sub {
        my $hashref = $_[0];
        # ...
    });
    The YAML input file needs to be separated into records:
    ---
    - recordno: 1
    - name: Alpha
    ---
    - recordno: 2
    - name: Beta
    ...
    where '---' is the record separator and '...' the EOF indicator.

CONFIGURATION

file
Read input from a local file given by its path. Alternatively a scalar reference can be passed to read from a string.
fh
Read input from an IO::Handle. If not specified, Catmandu::Util::io is used to create the input stream from the "file" argument or by using STDIN.
encoding
Binmode of the input stream "fh". Set to ":utf8" by default.
fix
An ARRAY of one or more fixes or file scripts to be applied to imported items.

METHODS

Every Catmandu::Importer is a Catmandu::Iterable all its methods are inherited. The Catmandu::Importer::YAML methods are not idempotent: YAML feeds can only be read once.
