You can't. The ConfigParser treats " ;" as inline comment delimiter. This is
undocumented (afaik) and badly hardcoded into the module. The time I found
this out, I simply hacked my own (way more simple) parser module

Anyway, you might try
instead. I've never used it myself, though.

Gib' mal folgendes in die Kommandozeile ein (und einen Moment warten):

net send localhost "Buuuh!"
Na, erschreckt?                              -- Markus Becker in mpdsh
