Feature #2784

The formatting options hash passed to the to_yaml methods do nothing.

Added by anshul (Anshul Khandelwal) over 9 years ago. Updated over 8 years ago.

Target version:


At the moment, there appears to be no documented way to format the output of the various to_yaml methods. They all accept an options hash but the documentation does not specify what options may be passed.

Also, the use of to_yaml_style is undocumented.

class Array
   def to_yaml_style

results in inline formatting of the resulting yaml. This is not documented anywhere but works.

This is further described in [1] and [2].

Not only is the options hash not documented, it is not working either.

Is this really a bug?
There is no documentation and doesn't work;
it is considered that there was no such function.

So my understanding is, this should be feature request.
Yeah, such function seems useful, but I don't have how it should works.
