I take it you have not seen the php function parse_ini_file()

Hi Chris

I know parse_ini_file, the purpose of this library is not exactly the finality of a parse_ini_file (getting an array), but to have an OBJECT of configuration that you can manipulate easily and explode it into different file parts (cf. merge method).

Well. Indeed I could have used parse_ini_file for the compiler, maybe in a next version, have really to evaluate if it is going to make more complex the compiler analysis or not.

Oh but wait (taken from the PHP manual)
phpversion[] = "5.0"
phpversion[] = "5.1"
phpversion[] = "5.2"
phpversion[] = "5.3"
is a little tedious way to write a config file, sincerely I do prefer a lot more

and get:
$config->phpversion as an array("5.0", "5.1", "5.2", "5.3")
More suitable for any object oriented program and simplicity of things.
