Python regular expression named groups breaks (?) pyyaml

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: xi
Priority: normal Component: pyyaml
Severity: normal Keywords:


I'm using pyyaml 3.09 in Python 2.6.5 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

I have a yaml file I used for configuration of a web server (tornado), and the section of my file causing issues looks like this:

  # [ path, handler class, [whitelist] ]
   - [/stats, myapp.core.Stats, [,]]
   - [r'/(?P<id>.*)', myapp.core.Foo, [,]]
   - [/.*, myapp.core.MainHandler, []]

When this gets loaded, pyyaml yells at me. Here's a python interpreter session:


Python 2.6.5 (r265:79063, Apr 16 2010, 13:09:56)

yaml.parser.ParserError: while parsing a flow sequence
  in "etc/myapp.yaml", line 35, column 5
expected ',' or ']', but got '?'
  in "etc/myapp.yaml", line 35, column 10


Line 35 is:

   - [r'/(?P<id>.*)', myapp.core.Foo, [,]]

I'm wondering why it's choking here. Disabling this line causes everything to work perfectly well. The question mark is a special case in YAML, but (I thought) only when it's accompanied by a space. I don't recall ever needing to escape anything inside of a yaml file, but I tried escaping the '?'. Not sure what to try next. If I double-quote like "r'/(?P<id>.*)'" then it'll be a double-quoted string on the other end of the load as well, which doesn't help me.

Clue hereby solicited.

Why do you use the r prefix? It's not supported by YAML the way it is interpreted by Python, instead you'll get a literal string "r'/(?P<id>.*)'". '/(?P<id>.*)' should work just fine, you can even use backslashes without escaping them.
