access and modify configuration data in INI files (Python 2)


iniparse is a INI parser for Python which is:

 * Compatible with ConfigParser: Backward compatible implementations of
   ConfigParser, RawConfigParser, and SafeConfigParser are included that are
   API-compatible with the Python standard library. They pass all the unit
   tests in Python-2.4.4.

 * Preserves structure of INI files: Order of sections & options, indentation,
   comments, and blank lines are preserved as far as possible when data is

 * More convenient: Values can be accessed using dotted notation
   (, or using container syntax (cfg['user']['name']).

It is very useful for config files that are updated both by users and by programs, since it is very disorienting for a user to have her config file completely rearranged whenever a program changes it. iniparse also allows making the order of entries in a config file significant, which is desirable in applications like image galleries.
