Version 4.0.1 of ConfigObj is now available. This includes one bugfix
and two new features.
What's New ?
Fixed bug in ``Section.walk`` when transforming names as well as
Added the ``istrue`` section method. (Fetches the boolean equivalent of
a string value).
Fixed ``list_values=False`` - single line values are not quoted or
for a description of these changes.
List values are written as ``item, item`` rather than ``item,item``.
What is ConfigObj ?
ConfigObj is a simple but powerful config file reader and writer: an
ini file round tripper. It's main feature is that it is very easy to
use, with a straightforward programmer's interface and a simple syntax
for config files. It has lots of other features though. This module is
used in most Voidspace projects. See the ConfigObj Home Page for full
It's features include :
* Nested sections (subsections), to any level
* List Values
* Multiple Line Values
* String interpolation (substitution)
* Integrated with a powerful validation system
o including automatic type checking/conversion
o repeated sections
o and allowing default values
* All comments in the file are preserved
* The order of keys/sections is preserved
* No external dependencies
