NAME ^

Config::MySQL::Reader - Read MySQL-style configuration files

VERSION ^

Version 0.01

SYNOPSIS ^

If my.cnf contains

    [mysqld]
    datadir=/var/lib/mysql
    skip-locking

    [mysqldump]
    quick
    max_allowed_packet = 16M

    !include /etc/my_other.cnf
    !include /etc/my_extra.cnf

Then when your program contains

    my $config = Config::MySQL::Reader->read_file('my.cnf');

$config will contain

    {
        '_' => {
            '!include' => [
                '/etc/my_other.cnf',
                '/etc/my_extra.cnf',
            ],
        },
        'mysqld' => {
            'datadir'      => '/var/lib/mysql',
            'skip-locking' => undef,
        },
        'mysqldump' => {
            'quick'              => undef,
            'max_allowed_packet' => '16M',
        },
    }

DECSRIPTION ^

This module extends Config::INI::Reader to support reading MySQL-style configuration files. Although deceptively similar to standard .INI files, they can include bare boolean options with no value assignment and additional features like !include and !includedir.

Config::MySQL::Reader does not read files included by the !include and !includedir directives, but does preserve the directives so that you can safely read, modify, and re-write configuration files without losing them. If you need to read the contents of included files, you may want to look at Config::Extend::MySQL which handles this automatically (but does not handle roundtripping).

METHODS FOR READING CONFIG ^

read_file, read_string, and read_handle

See "METHODS FOR READING CONFIG" in Config::INI::Reader for usage details.

OVERRIDDEN METHODS ^

parse_value_assignment

Copes with MySQL-style boolean properties that have no value assignment.

can_ignore

Handle !include and !includedir directives. Comments can start with hash too.

preprocess_line

Strip inline comments (starting with ; or #)
