YAML is sensitive to space character?


#1

I ran script/generate model Book and I got:
/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:133:in load': syntax error on line 23, col 2: socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (ArgumentError)
from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:133:in load' from /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-2.2.2/lib/initializer.rb:819:indatabase_configuration’

gem_original_require' from /usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:inrequire’
from script/generate:3

then I realized that I had mistakenly had an entry password:secret
instead of password: secret in database.yml.

Is database.yaml so sensitive to a space character? I couldn’t ascertain
it by looking at http://www.yaml.org/refcard.html.
