"SLC5X: Letter P: perl-Config-General
perl-Config-General - Generic configuration module for Perl
This module opens a config file and parses it's contents for
you. After parsing the module returns a hash structure which contains
the representation of the config file.
The format of config files supported by Config::General is inspired by
the well known apache config format, in fact, this module is 100%
read-compatible to apache configs, but you can also just use simple
name/value pairs in your config files.
In addition to the capabilities of a apache config file it supports
some enhancements such as here-documents, C- style comments or
multiline options. It is also possible to save the config back to
disk, which makes the module a perfect backend for configuration
It is possible to use variables in config files and there exists also
support for object oriented access to the configuration.
