module for describing and editing configuration data


Config::Model is a Perl framework that enables project developers to provide an interactive configuration system for their software. It supports various frontend interfaces (graphical, curses-based or plain terminal) to users. It handles configuration files semantically rather than syntactically, meaning that developers can specify the structure and constraints of the data along with a mechanism to read and write the files.

Using the structure and constraint information, Config::Model will generate interactive configuration editors that include help and data validation. It is equally simple to use graphical (via Tk) interfaces as well as curses- and ReadLine-based terminal interfaces.

Config::Model also provides a facility to help configuration data upgrade that can be triggered during package upgrades.

Config::Model provides configuration model and editor for:
 - popularity-contest
 - fstab (/etc/fstab)
 - multistrap

Other configuration editors are available with other libconfig-model-*-perl packages.

Depending on which suggested or recommended modules are installed, Config::Model provides several user interfaces:
 - shell-like interface (with any of lib-term-readlin-*-perl)
 - virtual file system where each config parameter is mapped to a file
  (with fuse package)
 - graphical user interface (with libconfig-model-tkui-perl)
