configparser

Package configparser provides a simple parser for reading/writing configuration (INI) files.

Supports reading/writing the INI file format in addition to:

  • Reading/writing duplicate section names (ex: MySQL NDB engine's config.ini)
  • Options without values (ex: can be used to group a set of hostnames)
  • Options without a named section (ex: a simple option=value file)
  • Find sections with regexp pattern matching on section names, ex: dc1.east.webservers where regex is '.webservers'
  • or ; as comment delimiter

  • = or : as value delimiter

You can’t perform that action at this time.
