50About PyYAML
51============
52
53YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
54interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
55emitter for Python.
56
57PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
58support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
59supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
60to represent an arbitrary Python object.
61
62PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
63configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
