Making some of those PHP-only functions available to Python
Sometimes you want to write a Python script for a project written in PHP. For the most part, this is easy, but for a few key things, PHP breaks with the standard and does things in a its own way. For these cases, you can use this module to compensate.
This was ripped shamelessly from a PHP forum and ported to Python:
Essentially, it's a (hopefully perfect) replica of PHP's http_build_query() that allows you to pass multi-dimensional arrays to a PHP-managed URL via POST or GET.
A hacked-together attempt at making an .ini file parser that's compatible with the "standards" that PHP follows in its parse_ini_file() function. Among the handy features included are:
- List notation (
varname = value)
- Associative array notation (
varname[key] = value)
- Removal of wrapping doublequotes (
varname = "stuff"becomes
varname = stuff)
You can turn off the doublequote removal with
from php import Php config = Php.parse_ini_file("config.ini") print config["sectionName"]["keyName"]
