YAML and the Art of Unix Programming

YAML and the Art of Unix Programming

My peregrinations around the web turned up a very interesting markup language called YAML. Basically it is designed to be very readable by humans and capable of easy computer manipulation. This might be useful if I ever get around to developing a book review or annotation system. I like the idea of using text files to enter the data. BibTex is another potent example.

Following the links to the YAML email list revealed that Eric S. Raymond, of Cathedral and the Bizarre fame, has just released a new book. The Art of UINX Programming.
