    Question Reading strings from a yml file

    I'm setting data to a yml file, then later going to display that data onto my application. The only problem I have is, I don't have a clue on how to read yml files.

    I'm going to be setting data as:

    coins: 100
    gold: 10
    Then, I'd like to get the lines number or setting:

    coins: "100"
    gold: "10"
    hello-message: "hello"
    Is there any "somewhat" easy way to do this?

    What have you tried?
    Basically: read the file, parse the line, extract the data
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
