Read .ini-style configuration files
ConfigIniFiles provides a way to have readable configuration files outside your Perl script. The configuration can be safely reloaded upon receipt of a signal. Configurations can be imported inherited, stacked,…, sections can be grouped, and settings can be accessed from a tied hash.
Get a new ConfigIniFiles object with the new method
$cfg = ConfigIniFiles->new -file => "/path/configfile.ini" ; $cfg = new ConfigIniFiles -file => "/path/configfile.ini";
Optional named parameters may be specified after the configuration file name. See the new in the METHODS section, below.
INI files consist of a number of sections, each preceded with the section name in square brackets. Parameters are specified in each section as Name=Value. Any spaces around the equals sign will be ignored, and the value extends to the end of the line.
