- many

The above YAML document contains a list with four strings. Here are the parameters sent to this method in the same order:

# value               anchor    tag     plain   quoted  style
["foo",               nil,      "!str", false,  false,  3    ]
["fun",               "anchor", nil,    true,   false,  1    ]
["many lines",        nil,      nil,    true,   false,  1    ]
["many\nnewlines\n",  nil,      nil,    false,  true,   4    ]
