Bug #1653

Updated by jeremyevans0 (Jeremy Evans) 9 months ago

=begin 
  
  I was experimenting with how multiple documents in one file are processed by YAML. I went to the yaml specification site and copied an example there(http://yaml.org/spec/current.html). 
  In irb: 
  str = "--- 
  time: 20:03:20 
  player: Sammy Sosa 
  action: strike (miss) 
  ... 
  --- 
  time: 20:03:47 
  player: Sammy Sosa 
  action: grand slam 
  ..." 
  YAML::load_documents(str){|d| puts d.inspect} 
 
  results in: {"player"=>"Sammy Sosa", "action"=>"strike (miss)", "time"=>72200} 
  ArgumentError: syntax error on line 8, col 3: `' 
          from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:217:in `load_documents' 
          from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:217:in `each_document' 
          from /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml.rb:232:in `load_documents' 
          from (irb):11 
 
  while: YAML::load_documents(str+"\n"){|d| puts d.inspect} # Added newline ad end 
  Results in: 
  {"player"=>"Sammy Sosa", "action"=>"strike (miss)", "time"=>72200} 
  {"player"=>"Sammy Sosa", "action"=>"grand slam", "time"=>72227} 
  which is what I expected in the first place. 
 
  This test is done in irb for ruby versions: 
  1.8.7-72 
  and 
  1.9.0
