Thanks for the response. It did work!

>>> config = ConfigParser()
>>> config.read("Testcases.txt")
['Testcases.txt']
>>> output = config.get("Information", "Testcases")
>>> print output

tct123
tct124
tct125
>>> output
'\ntct123\ntct124\ntct125'
>>>

However, as I am going to provide Testcases.txt to be "user editable",
I cannot assume or "ask users" to provide value testcases surronded by
spaces. I got to figure out a workaround here.

Thanks,
Senthil
