Syck is a YAML toolkit for scripting languages. (At the moment: Python, Ruby and PHP.) It is the result of recoding YAML.rb in C, based on ideas found in Ruby's marshal.c. Benchmarking has shown Syck to be in close proximity of speed to the native marshalling formats of Python, Ruby and PHP. Extensions are included for Ruby, PHP and Python. A Perl module is also available. Syck is now included with the Ruby 1.8.0 distribution.
