Hi there,

I am quite new on python programming and need some help on solving my

I have to make a (python) program which deletes files from
directories. I don't think deleting, etc. is the problem. The problem
is that the directories where i have to delete them are 'dynamic'/
subject to change. So what i thought is to make a config file
containing an identifier (useful for myself) and there the directory.
something like:

I have already seen that there are sorts of modules where you can read
a config file, but only when you know the key.. Can someone help me
out on this? The configfile can be altered in time (as there are more
projects coming where i have to delete files on a scheduled basis).

This is a good learning project for me, but i really don't see how to
solve this.
