#63 invalid % character cannot start a scalar value token xi sproaticus

Reported by sproaticus, 10 years ago.


A scalar value cannot start with a % (percent sign) character, though the YAML specification only reserves that character at the beginning of a non-indented line for directives and tags (see and ). This character should be legal as the first character of a scalar value, e.g. for Python %s-style string substitution and templates.

>>> yaml.load('yaml: %')

#64 fixed yaml.dump and indentation: xi…

Reported by…, 10 years ago.


In python, when I have :

y = {'x' : 3, z : [{'val' : 3}, {'val' : 4}]} yaml.dump(y, default_flow_style=False)

The result is: 'x: 3\nz:\n- val: 3\n- val: 4\n'

I believe there should be a space before each hypen.



#65 worksforme Noise in output xi miki@…

Sometimes when dumping a large dictionary, some stray "--" are generated.

The dictionary of type (string -> list). Example output:

- icco
- oecd
- un
--- - iea
- eca
- adb-africa
- adb-asia

I can provide a test case that cases the error on my machine, mail me.
