Hi, there Is there any way to make YAML alias same strings in dumps? The following code fragment: require 'yaml' s = 'a' * 10 puts [ s, s ].to_yaml Produces this: --- - aaaaaaaaaa - aaaaaaaaaa While I need: --- - &id001 aaaaaaaaaa - *id001 Interestingly, if I define s as: s = [ 'a' * 10 ] The output is aliased just fine: --- - &id001 - aaaaaaaaaa - *id001 Thanks, Gennady.
