<?php
$yaml 
= <<<EOD
---
invoice: 34843
date: "2001-01-23"
bill-to: &id001
  given: Chris
  family: Dumars
  address:
    lines: |-
      458 Walkman Dr.
              Suite #292
    city: Royal Oak
    state: MI
    postal: 48046

EOD;

$parsed yaml_parse($yaml);
var_dump($parsed);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

array(8) {
  ["invoice"]=>
  int(34843)
  ["date"]=>
  string(10) "2001-01-23"
  ["bill-to"]=>
  &array(3) {
    ["given"]=>
    string(5) "Chris"
    ["family"]=>
    string(6) "Dumars"
    ["address"]=>
    array(4) {
      ["lines"]=>
      string(34) "458 Walkman Dr.
        Suite #292"
      ["city"]=>
      string(9) "Royal Oak"
      ["state"]=>
      string(2) "MI"
      ["postal"]=>
      int(48046)
    }
  }
  ["ship-to"]=>
  &array(3) {
    ["given"]=>
    string(5) "Chris"
    ["family"]=>
    string(6) "Dumars"
    ["address"]=>
    array(4) {
      ["lines"]=>
      string(34) "458 Walkman Dr.
        Suite #292"
      ["city"]=>
      string(9) "Royal Oak"
      ["state"]=>
      string(2) "MI"
      ["postal"]=>
      int(48046)
    }
  }
  ["product"]=>
  array(2) {
    [0]=>
    array(4) {
      ["sku"]=>
      string(6) "BL394D"
      ["quantity"]=>
      int(4)
      ["description"]=>
      string(10) "Basketball"
      ["price"]=>
      int(450)
    }
    [1]=>
    array(4) {
      ["sku"]=>
      string(7) "BL4438H"
      ["quantity"]=>
      int(1)
      ["description"]=>
      string(10) "Super Hoop"
      ["price"]=>
      int(2392)
    }
  }
  ["tax"]=>
  float(251.42)

Simple usage example of interpreting custom tags:
<?php
$data
=
"#yaml
---
data: !mytag bar test
...
"
;

function
callback($value){
  return
str_replace('bar','baz',$value);
}
$cnt;
$array=yaml_parse($data,0,$cnt,array('!mytag'=>'callback'));

print_r($array['data']);
?>
output:
Array
(
   [data] => baz test
)
