in reply to Config::IniFiles

App::Config written by Andy Wardley (CPAN author id ABW), handles this configuration file type as well as others. It is a much older module (meaning, much more time to be debugged).

We discussed App::Config as ameans of application configuration.

I really sometimes think someone should reject these new modules if they dont offer any new functionality.

    Config::IniFiles can write as well as read config files. It is a better general method of reading INI files, whereas AppConfig is for more "known" config files.

    Oddly enough, princepawn I used YOUR post as a trigger to investigate config modules after coming across this situation here at work.

    How I ended up testing Config::IniFiles instead of App::Config is a bit of a mystery...
