56About PyYAML
57============
58
59YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
60interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
61emitter for Python.
62
63PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
64support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
65supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
66to represent an arbitrary Python object.
67
68PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
69configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
