Perl5 module to read directives from a configuration file
The ConfigReader library is a set of classes which reads directives from a configuration file. The library is completely object oriented, and it is envisioned that parsers for new styles of configuration files can be easily added. ConfigReaderSpec encapsulates a specification for configuration directives. You can specify which directives can be in the configuration file, aliases for the directive, whether the directive is required or has a default value, and how to parse the directive value. Here's an example of how one directive might be specified required $spec 'HomePage', 'new URIURL'; This defines a required directive called 'HomePage'. To parse the value from the configuration file, the URIURLnew method will be called with the string value as its argument. use 'perldoc ConfigReader' for more information.
