parse and manage key=value configuration files - command line utils


libeconf is a highly flexible and configureable library to parse and manage key=value configuration files. It reads configuration file snippets from different directories and builds the final configuration file for the application from it.

The first file is the vendor provided configuration file. There are two methods of overriding this vendor settings: copy the file from /usr/vendordir to /etc and modify the settings. Alternatively, a directory named file.suffix.d/ within /etc can be created, with drop-in files in the form name.suffix. This files contain only the changes of the specific settings the user is interested in. There can be several such drop-in files, they are processed in lexicographic order of their filename.

This package provides command line utilities (econftool).
