The Config Parser module is for extracting data from and writing to a
specific format of file, generally known as a config file. As explained in
the documentation, a config file is in the same format as .ini files
frequently found on windows - especially used by older software.
It is a very handy file format for all sorts of jobs, more so on Linux these
days than Windows, probably. However, it isn't much use for your particular
need as described here.
