Read Apache/Config-General config files in Raku
my $config = Ujumla.new( config-text => q:to/EIEIO/);
# Some comment
name "something or other"
say $config.get-item('name'); # "something or other"
say $config.get-item('Section', 'section-name'); # "whatever"
This module aims to be able to read those configuration files that can be read
by the Perl 5 module Config::General
which in itself supports a superset of the Apache httpd configuration syntax.
I haven't named it
Config::General because I wouldn't want to take the name from someone who might
be able to do better and because I don't want to raise the expectation that this is a port of the Perl 5
module - the interface and options are likely to differ wildly from that module. It is instead named for
the first search result for "Swahili for General".
You can find the fuller documentation here.
Assuming you have a working Rakudo compiler you should be able to install this with zef :
zef install Ujumla
# Or from a local clone
zef install .
If you have any suggestions, complaints or patches please direct them to Github
The chances are that this won't parse every conceivable configuration file, so if you find something that
you think it should parse but doesn't a failing test case would be much appreciated.
