Config::Backend::File - a file backend for Config::Frontend.
Config::Backend::File is a file backend for Config::Frontend. It handles files with identifiers that are assigned values. The files can have comments.
set() will immediately result in file to be rewritten.
The configuration file has following syntax:
%# Head of the configuration file %variable=value %variable=mult line value with %% double percentage sign at the beginning of the line % indicating %%# (This is not a comment) a single escaped percentage sign. %# Comments start with %#.
Invoked with a valid filename, new will open the filename for reading and read in the configuration items. A configuration file will have the following form:
%var = value %multiline=Hi there, This is a multiline, with a hundred, %% (percent) read back. %test=1000.0
Notice that the percentage sign in a multiline config item will be doubled to distinguish it from config variables.
This function will write back the configuration to file.
