What is the most Pythonic way to maintain a configuration file?
Are there any libraries mimicking registry / ini file writing that many
windows programming languages/environments offer?

Let me add:
cfgparse, iniparse
I've look at all to find a simple solution for my interest, but I realized
not a good result.
I'm using three of them ConfigParser, cfgparse and optparse. Just to let read
a configuration file and let user to subclass option at the console.
If I'll get experienced by cfgparse I think I'll drop ConfigParser, because
I'd like the idea to override file rules on console.

Does ConfigParser allow writing configuration changes also?

We are currently still in development, but we have a few deployments to test the software. These deployments each have...

Hey all, I am trying to add a configuration file to my app so that I can store configuration options and provide a form to allow the user to change them.

Are XML files the preferred method of doing this? Whatever the correct way of handling configuration files is, can someone...

After reading some articles regarding confuguration data I'm a bit confused. Where is the right place for storing configuration data? - XML-files? - registry? - INI-files? (from a users point of view, ini-files are more comfortable to read and edit) Where should I store user specific config data? Where should I store machine specific config data?

OK. A bit behind the times, I know; but we're just moving over to .NET 2.0. How on earth do you manage configuration settings in a class library in .NET 2.0? In version 1.1, we used a handy class called AssemblySettings that someone (I forget his name) had written. When the class library was finished, you deployed it to the GAC and put the configuration files in the GAC with the class library assembly. This no longer works. In fact...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
