    Description :
    YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
    interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
    emitter for Python.
    
    PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
    support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
    supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that
    allow to represent an arbitrary Python object.
