in reply to Configuration file design

I ran into a similar problem a while ago and I ended up doing it like that:
config file:

[one_server] save_dir = /var/spool/bla/files [one_server ABC] dir = /var/spool/gugus/bla/save glob = . archive = p2gspsam.gsp_toAMS.save.tar.gz [one_server XYZ] dir = /var/spool/kw4711/bla glob = . archive = kw4711.bla.tar.gz [one_server DEF] dir = /var/spool/quatsch/bla/save glob = . archive = quatsch.bla.save.tar.gz
I then use Config::IniFiles to read the configuration:
my $cfg = Config::IniFiles->new( -file => "./$p_cfgfile" ); foreach my $group ($cfg->Groups) { ## do something with: $cfg->val($group, 'save_dir'); foreach my $member ($cfg->GroupMembers($group)) { ## do something with: $cfg->val($member, 'dir'); ## do something with: $cfg->val($member, 'glob'); ## do something with: $cfg->val($member, 'archive'); } }
The concept of "groups" and "members" can be used to implement structured configuration as long as it contains only two layers.
