what ever happened to the day of standard config files. Everything is going yaml and I cannot express enough how much I don't like yaml files and that seems to be all what I deal with daily.

@omnipotens How bad is it? I thought they were just key/value pairs ??

@BradleySmall I just spent 45 minutes because I cut and pasted a config from a website and do to some space/tab formatting the file was not working properly for some reason no idea just a but frustrated now.

@omnipotens so was it just the spaces/tabs or were the - characters corrupted?

@BradleySmall no idea i went through the file removed them and re-added

@omnipotens if I have c&p and things go south, the first thing I look at are the - and " characters. There is no reason they have to screw with them but that tends to be the culprit most of the time :S

@BradleySmall well the dash is common I already use global replace automatically when I have stuff with dashes


@omnipotens I miss the days when everything was just ascii :)
