Use .NET app.config file.

Key-value pair settings can be stored in the <appSettings> section.  For example,

   <add key="LoginAttempts" value="3" />

You can access the key-value pair through (depending on which version of .NET you are using) the System.Configuration Namespace.

// .NET 1.x

// .NET 2.0

Subject: [IronPython] INI File For IronPython

Hey Folks,

Just wanted to pick a few brains...

I was working on storage for GUI applications using INI files and
CPython libs. I am looking to remove the dependency on Python 2 and do
it all in DotNet. However as far as I can see there is not direct
support for settings files - at least this is what I gather from all
the implementations on the web of various XML/registry solutions none
of which look too polished next to ConfigObj or the Python standard

How have other people solved this? Just need the basic name/value pair
to sart with.
