Introduction to iniparse
iniparse is a INI parser for Python which is:
* Compatible with ConfigParser: Backward compatible implementations
of ConfigParser, RawConfigParser, and SafeConfigParser are included
that are API-compatible with the Python standard library.
* 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.
