# Yaml - Scalar

There are 5 styles of scalars in YAML:

• plain, - A plain scalar does not use indicators to denote its start and end
• single-quoted, - to express any value that does not contain special characters - No escaping occurs except that duplicate quotes '' are replaced with a single quote '
• double-quoted, - can express any scalar value by allowing escaping with the following sequences:
• \x** for ASCII
• \u**** for Unicode character.
• literal (block), indicated by | where all line breaks are significant (A little bit the same than a here doc)
• and folded (block) - similar to the literal style, but two consequent non-empty lines are joined to a single line separated by a space character.
plain: Scroll of Remove Curse
single-quoted: 'EASY_KNOW'
double-quoted: "?"
# ASCII Art
literal: |
\//||\/||
// ||  ||__
folded: >
It removes all ordinary curses from all equipped items.
Heavy or permanent curses are unaffected.
