Feature #10065

Make `gem env` command output valid YAML

Added by david_macmahon (David MacMahon) over 6 years ago. Updated about 6 years ago.

Target version:


The output of gem environment is close to being valid YAML, but the GEM CONFIGURATION section uses key => value instead of key: value so the output cannot be parsed by YAML. The attached patch changes just one line to make the output of gem environment be valid YAML.

I could not find a specification for the output of the gem environment command so I am filing this as a feature request rather than as a bug.

The attached patch is the minimum change necessary to create valid YAML. I think the structure of the resulting YAML output is not optimal. It is currently a one element Hash whose only value is an Array of one element Hashes. Is it preferable to address that in a separate feature request or as an expansion of this one?
