Items before the first heading\nare saved on the object directly.\n\n## Usage\n\nConsider an ini-file `config.ini` that looks like this:\n\n ; this comment is being ignored\n scope = global\n\n [database]\n user = dbuser\n password = dbpassword\n database = use_this_database\n\n [paths.default]\n datadir = /var/lib/data\n\nYou can read, manipulate and write the ini-file like so:\n\n var fs = require('fs')\n , ini = require('ini')\n\n var config = ini.parse(fs.readFileSync('./config.ini', 'utf-8'))\n\n config.scope = 'local'\n config.database.database = 'use_another_database'\n config.paths.default.tmpdir = '/tmp'\n delete config.paths.default.datadir\n\n fs.writeFileSync('./config_modified.ini', ini.stringify(config, 'section'))\n\nThis will result in a file called `config_modified.ini` being written to the filesystem with the following content:\n\n [section]\n scope = local\n [section.database]\n user = dbuser\n password = dbpassword\n database = use_another_database\n [section.paths.default]\n tmpdir = /tmp\n\n## API\n\n### decode(inistring)\nDecode the ini-style formatted `inistring` into a nested object.\n\n### parse(inistring)\nAlias for `decode(inistring)`\n\n### encode(object, [section])\nEncode the object `object` into an ini-style formatted string. If the optional parameter `section` is given, then all top-level properties of the object are put into this section and the `section`-string is prepended to all sub-sections, see the usage example above.\n\n### stringify(object, [section])\nAlias for `encode(object, [section])`\n\n### safe(val)\nEscapes the string `val` such that it is safe to be used as a key or value in an ini-file. Basically escapes quotes. For example\n\n'\"unsafe string\"')\n\nwould result in\n\n \"\\\"unsafe string\\\"\"\n\n### unsafe(val)\nUnescapes the string `val`\n\n",
