Silent failure when your yaml is bad can be a problem. Here's a
useful one liner that will pass silently or fail noisily.
perl -MYAML=LoadFile -e 'LoadFile $ARGV'
also consider using .conf instead, it's less easy to get wrong. Once
you've got your app config working try this and swap out myapp.yml
perl -Ilib -e 'use MyApp; use Config::General; Config::General->new-
There's probably some cruft in the .conf file you need to remove, but
it's still less painful than yaml imo.
