Grant Report : Complete YAML::PP - December 2017

No Comments

More good stuff this month from Tinita on the grant Complete YAML::PP.

She explains the YAML schema concept and its evolving flavors in this interesting post. This lays the foundation for understanding the schema features added to the YAML::PP loader. Tina also fixed a couple of problems in YAML::XS.

Her latest report can be read in full on her blog. Code is always fresh at
