py27-iniparse - Better INI parser for Python
||FreeBSD Ports Quarterly amd64
iniparse is a INI parser for Python which is:
- Compatiable with ConfigParser:
Backward compatible implementations of ConfigParser,
RawConfigParser, and SafeConfigParser are included that are
API-compatible with the Python standard library.
They pass all the unit tests in Python-2.4.4.
- Preserves structure of INI files:
Order of sections & options, indentation, comments, and blank
lines are preserved as far as possible when data is updated.
- More convenient:
Values can be accessed using dotted notation (cfg.user.name),
or using container syntax (cfg['user']['name']).
It is very useful for config files that are updated both by users and by
programs, since it is very disorienting for a user to have her config
file completely rearranged whenever a program changes it. iniparse also
allows making the order of entries in a config file significant, which is
desirable in applications like image galleries.
