I hope it works out for you.

The first thing is to learn how Syck works. :-) I don't understand the =
yacc code, for example.
I was also thinking that YAML would be a good language to write data and =
application configuration files. I tried XML. The problem was:
(a) The DLLs were often larger than the application. At the moment, =
YAML.DLL is 76K, and probably could be made smaller by optimization. =
Apache Xerces C++ (which I like for what it does), is to 2 M.=20
(b) It would be too much work to generate the XML, or read it again.
(c) Often, the size of the tags, "<" characters, etc. would be larger =
than the data.
YAML seemed like a refreshing change - low memory footprint, intuitive =
syntax, and readable. Not to mention Unicode (although I think Syck =
needs a big push in that direction :).=20
