I have a file providing settings for both a shell script and a python
program. It looks like this:
and so on. I'm looking for a short snippet (I hope for a one liner) to
grok the file and return a dictionary of the settings. Trivial, you
say? Yes, but this is not the first time I feel this need, and each
time I find myself rewritting basically the same ditty:
with open(authfile) as af:
for line in af:
k, v = line.strip().split('=', 1)
result[k] = v
There must be a better, batteries based way. Right?
