YAML in 1.8.3 and 1.8.4


#1

Hi guys,

I’m trying to learn the usage of yaml from:
http://yaml4r.sourceforge.net/doc/ and keep getting problems. The
biggest problem seems to be that the — separator isn’t included
anymore. For example:
irb(main):009:0> puts( true.to_yaml )
true

instead of the documented:
puts( true.to_yaml )

prints:

— true

This makes it harder to just dump data to a file and load it later. I
reverted back to ruby 1.8.2 and there everything seems to be working
normally. I looked at the rdoc of 1.8.4 and all over the web and they
all indicate that the former behaviour is the correct one. Is this a bug
or has something changed? Is there a better/correct way of dumping a lot
of different objects to a file?

Greetings,
Edwin

This was a common problem with Ruby 1.8.3, but it has been fixed in
Ruby 1.8.4.

Ops excuse my stupidity, I was sure I was already running ruby 1.8.4,
but apparently I had not upgraded my laptop yet.
