I'm using version 2.0.0 of php-yaml.

According to, empty streams are valid, they don't have to include a document.
Take the example provided in the spec, where the stream only consists of comments.

Test script:

yaml_parse('#Only comment');

Expected result:
array(0) {


string(0) ""

or even


Actual result:
PHP Warning:  yaml_parse(): end of stream reached without finding document 0
