crudini - A utility for manipulating ini files

Usage: crudini --set [OPTION]...   config_file section   [param] [value]
  or:  crudini --get [OPTION]...   config_file [section] [param]
  or:  crudini --del [OPTION]...   config_file section   [param] [list value]
  or:  crudini --merge [OPTION]... config_file [section]

Options:

  --existing[=WHAT]  For --set, --del and --merge, fail if item is missing,
                       where WHAT is 'file', 'section', or 'param', or if
                       not specified; all specifed items.
  --format=FMT       For --get, select the output FMT.
                       Formats are sh,ini,lines
  --inplace          Lock and write files in place.
                       This is not atomic but has less restrictions
                       than the default replacement method.
  --list             For --set and --del, update a list (set) of values
  --list-sep=STR     Delimit list values with "STR" instead of " ,"
  --output=FILE      Write output to FILE instead. '-' means stdout
  --verbose          Indicate on stderr if changes were made

Examples:

# Add/Update a var
  crudini --set config_file section parameter value

# Update an existing var
  crudini --set --existing config_file section parameter value

# Delete a var
  crudini --del config_file section parameter

# Delete a section
  crudini --del config_file section

# output a value
  crudini --get config_file section parameter

# output a global value not in a section
  crudini --get config_file '' parameter

# output a section
  crudini --get config_file section

# output a section, parseable by shell
  eval $(crudini --get --format=sh config_file section)

# update an ini file from shell variable(s)
  echo name="$name" | crudini --merge config_file section

# merge an ini file from another ini
  crudini --merge config_file < another.ini

# compare two ini files using standard UNIX text processing
  diff <(crudini --get --format=lines file1.ini|sort) \
       <(crudini --get --format=lines file2.ini|sort)
