ConfigObj is a simple but powerful config file reader and writer: an
ini file round tripper. Its 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:
* Nested sections (subsections), to any level
* List values
* Multiple line values
* String interpolation (substitution)
* Integrated with a powerful validation system
+ including automatic type checking/conversion
+ and allowing default values
+ repeated sections
* All comments in the file are preserved
* The order of keys/sections is preserved
* Full Unicode support
* Powerful unrepr mode for storing/retrieving Python data-types
This is the Python 2 version of the package.
