I would like to announce what could be the most trivial YAML processor
ever to be developed, now or hence! ;-) YamlCat - the equivalent of the
UNIX cat command, for Yaml streams.
It also has another use. We have an error reporter tool that reads logs from
a variety of formats, and creates a Yaml document which it writes to a file.
The acceptance test for this document includes human verification of the
output to a limited extent, which is easy with Yaml. It also checks that the
file is legal Yaml. I did this with a 2 line Python script that attempted to
read the document, and puked if the input was not legal. Yamlcat could (I
hope) also be used for this purpose, as simple Yaml verifier.
