FAQ

Q1: Does ‘dosca’ have validation capabilities?

A1: No, it’s not. If you want validate your config, use library designed for this task. Contract, Procrustes or, perhaps, Damn Simple Validation Library?

Q2: Does it support interpolation or some complex types?

A2: No, it’s not. When I say ‘simple’, I mean really simple. Dosca only support basic things, essential for parsing config files. If you want advanced features, use ConfigObj or ConfigParser. Or xml and dtd?
