SYNOPSIS



  use Glib;

  $data .= $_ while (<DATA>);

  if ($f->has_group(Main) && $f->has_key(Main, someotherkey)) {
      $val = $f->get_integer(Main, someotherkey);
      print $val . "\n";
  }
  0;

DESCRIPTION

<B>Glib::KeyFileB> lets you parse, edit or create files containing groups of key-value pairs, which we call key files for lack of a better name. Several freedesktop.org specifications use key files now, e.g the Desktop Entry Specification and the Icon Theme Specification.

The syntax of key files is described in detail in the Desktop Entry Specification, here is a quick summary: Key files consists of groups of key-value pairs, interspersed with comments.

METHODS

keyfile = Glib::KeyFile->new

boolean = CW$key_file->get_boolean ($group_name, CW$key)

o $group_name (string)
o $key (string)

list = CW$key_file->get_boolean_list ($group_name, CW$key)

o $group_name (string)
o $key (string)

o $group_name (string)
o $key (string)
o ... (list) list of booleans
Sets a list of booleans in $key inside $group_name. If $key cannot be found then it is created. If $group_name cannot be found then it is created.

CW$key_file->set_boolean ($group_name, CW$key, CW$value)

o $group_name (string)
o $key (string)
o $value (boolean)

string = CW$key_file->get_comment ($group_name=undef, CW$key=undef)

o $group_name (string or undef)
o $key (string or undef)

Places a comment above $key from $group_name. If $key is undef then $comment will be written above $group_name. If both $key and $group_name are undef, then $comment will be written above the first group in the file.

May croak with a Glib::Error in $@ on failure.
