libConfuse is a configuration file parser library written in C. It
supports sections and (lists of) values (strings, integers, floats,
booleans or other sections), as well as some other features (such as
single/double-quoted strings, environment variable expansion,
functions and nested include statements).
It makes it very easy to add configuration file capability to a
program using a simple API.
