Subject: inconsisten indentation error with '<<' as first key in mapping
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 369b
Hi, in an YAML based config module I have added support for the special key '<<', used for merging entries. However I ran into a YAML_PARSE_ERR_INCONSISTENT_INDENTATION error, when '<<' is the first key in a mapping. This look like a bug to me. So far everything looks OK when '<<' is the second key in a mapping. I have attached a short example. Regards, Bernhard
