Not C, but C++ (but there are also C implementations): YAML, see:
http://code.google.com/p/yaml-cpp/wiki/HowToParseADocument

I use YAML now and then with Perl for both reading/writing data and for
debugging purposes (YAML is quite human readable, for programmers at least)

Of course there is also YAML support for Python:
http://pyyaml.org/.
