Help with ConfigParser

Hello I use ConfigParser as show below to read a config.txt file;

from ConfigParser import ConfigParser

config = ConfigParser()
config.read('co nfig.txt')
items = config.items('F V')
for item in items:
module_name = item[0]
print module_name
The config.txt file has the following

[FV]
# Set the module to "1" to enable the regression test run on it, otherwise
set it to "0"

ip_dtlmmio0_180 3: 0
ip_gpio0_4004: 0
ip_dmac0_1903: 0
ip_ptA_a_sdramc _2022: 1
ip_timer0_3012: 0

the output has been convert to lowercase, i.e ip_ptA_a_sdramc _2022 become
ip_pta_a_sdramc _2022
(the captial letter 'A, become lower case 'a').

Hi,
from the documentation:

optionxform(opt ion)

Transforms the option name option as found in an input file or as passed in
by client code to the form that should be used in the internal structures.
The default implementation returns a lower-case version of option;
subclasses may override this or client code can set an attribute of this
name on instances to affect this behavior. Setting this to str(), for
example, would make option names case sensitive.

Bye,
Enrico

I'm trying to subclass ConfigParser so I can use a custom __read method (the custom format doesn't conform to RFC 822) when needed. Needless to say, it's not working as expected. In the following code, I bind __read_ini to __read and override __read so it can choose between __read_ini and __read_custom. But it seems that __read_custom never...

I'm having a bit of trouble getting my head around the ConfigParser module. I have a very simple configuration file; maybe the easiest thing to do would be to show that: ============ # Add a local directory to be backed up followed # by the directory name on the FTP server. # # Example: /home/joe/digital photos = photos

I am working with PythonCard in one of my apps. For its purposes, it uses an .ini file that is passed to ConfigParser.

It looks like ConfigParser will accept a list to be writing to the *.ini file; but when reading it back in, it treats it as a string. Example: ############################### import ConfigParser def whatzit(thingname, thing): print thingname, "value:", thing print thingname, "length:", len(thing)

Hi - I'm having a little trouble using exceptions properly. I currently have an initialization function on a little app that looks like this: def __init__(self, config_file): self.fahdata = fahdata.FAHData() self.INI = ConfigParser.ConfigParser() if os.path.exists(config_file): try: self.INI.read(config_file)
