in reply to conf file in Perl syntax

see perlintro
you can use .ini files store your configurations like
host1=192.168.1.1
...

and to access those variables and values you can use config::inifiles
you can also check do if you just want that configuration from a .pl file into the main script

    Good, nice I like it. I read that you can have the values in an array with:
    @values = $cfg->val('Section', 'Parameter'); # this will be the array +holding the IPs
    How can I get the names of the hosts in an array too?
      you can tie to a hash, and get to iterate through the keys(variables) and values(actual values) of the hash.
      an example is given in the man page of the config::inifiles itself. it is easy
      use Config::IniFiles; my %ini tie %ini, 'Config::IniFiles', ( -file => "/path/configfile.ini" ); print "We have $ini{Section}{Parameter}." if $ini{Section}{Parameter +}; my @keys = keys %{$ini{$section}} while (($k, $v) = each %{$ini{$section}}) {...} if( exists %{$ini{$section}}, $parameter ) {...}

        I am sorry but I dont quite get it. Lets say that we have the following ini file:
        [hosts] host_1 = 192.168.1.1 host_2 = 192.168.1.2 host_3 = 192.168.1.3
        I need to have @hosts, containing: host_1, host_2 & host_3. Also @ips containing 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2 & 192.168.1.3 Is this possible? Sorry for me being stupid!
