    v7 v8  
    1818[wiki:PyYAMLLegacy PyYAML Legacy] is the original implementation developed by various authors 
    1919(moved from http://pyyaml.dyndns.org/cgi-bin/trac.cgi).

     21== What implementation should you use? == 
     22 
     23Read this if you are confused trying to choose a suitable implementation. 
     24 
     25 * [wiki:PyYAML PyYAML 3000] is the most promising implementation, but it is still very young. 
     26   [wiki:PyYAML PyYAML 3000] is a pure Python [http://yaml.org/spec/cvs/current.html YAML 1.1] parser supporting all the features of YAML including Unicode. 
     27   It does not yet include a YAML emitter. 
     28   '''Use [wiki:PyYAML PyYAML 3000] if you need a YAML parser and do not need a YAML emitter.'' 
     29   For example, [wiki:PyYAML PyYAML 3000] is excellent for configuration files. 
     30 * PySyck is a Python binding to the C library [http://whytheluckystiff.net/syck/ Syck]. 
     31   Syck supports [http://yaml.org/spec/history/2004-01-29/2004-01-29.html YAML 1.0] (w/o Unicode) and provides both parser and emitter. 
     32   '''Use PySyck if you really need a YAML emitter.''' 
     33   For instance, PySyck may be used as a pickle replacement. 
     34 * [wiki:PyYAMLLegacy PyYAML Legacy] is an old implementation of YAML parser and emitter for Python. It seems to be abandoned. 
     35   '''Use [wiki:PyYAMLLegacy PyYAML Legacy] if your project already relies on this code.'''
