yaml_parse_fileParse a YAML stream from a file


mixed yaml_parse_file ( string $filename [, int $pos = 0 [, int &$ndocs [, array $callbacks ]]] )

Convert all or part of a YAML document stream read from a file to a PHP variable.



Path to the file.


Document to extract from stream (-1 for all documents, 0 for first document, ...).


If ndocs is provided, then it is filled with the number of documents found in stream.


Content handlers for YAML nodes. Associative array of YAML tag => callable mappings. See parse callbacks for more details.

Return Values

Returns the value encoded in input in appropriate PHP type or FALSE on failure. If pos is -1 an array will be returned with one entry for each document found in the stream.



Processing untrusted user input with yaml_parse_file() is dangerous if the use of unserialize() is enabled for nodes using the !php/object tag. This behavior can be disabled by using the yaml.decode_php ini setting.
