I have saved two files one in xml and the other in yml using same method void ParametreOperation::write(cv::FileStorage& fs) const . Now I want to read it :

#include <opencv2/opencv.hpp> 
#include <iostream>
#include <map>
#include <fstream>

using namespace cv;

int main (int argc,char **argv)
FileStorage fsx("test.xml", FileStorage::READ);
FileStorage fsy("test.yml", FileStorage::READ);

I have got an exception for fsy :

OpenCV Error: Parsing error (test.yml(5): Incorrect indentation) in icvYMLParseValue, fi le ......\modules\core\src\persistence.cpp, line 1327

What's wrong in this file ?

Thanks you for your help

I am not sure, have you saved it in yml format, or it is hand-made (written by you or someone else)? Try to open it with another yml library...

thanks for your answer To save it

FileStorage fsx("test.xml", FileStorage::WRITE);
FileStorage fsy("test.yml", FileStorage::WRITE);

I can read my data using xml data without problem. It looks like a bug in yml parser. But I'm not sure. have you got same exception with my data?

File generated in yml by opencv is not good if we believe this site (

For this site this file is good

I have deleted some underscore before "{" and put some comma after "}" bug 4356
