in reply to perl module that does parsing to config files

Module? no but maybe something like this?

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $conffile = "ldirector.conf"; my %chash; my $key = ""; my $value = ""; my $virtual = ""; open(CONF, "< $conffile") or die "Couldn't open $conffile for reading: $!\n"; while(<CONF>) { chomp(); ($key,$value) = split(/=/); if ($key eq "virtual") { $virtual = $value; } elsif ($key =~ s/^\s+(.*)/$1/) { $chash{'virtual'}{$virtual}{$key}=$value; } else { $chash{$key}=$value; } }
Caveats: This code was thrown together in mere minutes. so no responsibility taken if it accientally wipes your hard drive and stuff ;) It should read your config file though and put your variables into a hash with the part before the = as key and the part after the = as the value. Saves the virtual value if it encounters one and add every line that follows as a key value pair to $chash{'virtual'}{$lastvirtualencountered}{$key} = $value pairs

So make sure that there is NO intendet line before the first virtual or else this code will not work correctly.
