40About PyYAML
41============
42
43YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
44interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
45emitter for Python.
46
47PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
48support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
49supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
50to represent an arbitrary Python object.
51
52PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
53configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
