A parser for /etc/default configuration files

Project description

etcDefault
==========

A parser for /etc/default configuration files which parses these files with a
bash subshell in order to have 100% of the bash features when including this
configuration into an python driven init script.

Example
-------

root@host # cat /etc/default/rcS
#
# /etc/default/rcS
#
# Default settings for the scripts in /etc/rcS.d/
#
# For information about these variables see the rcS(5) manual page.
#
# This file belongs to the "initscripts" package.

TMPTIME=0
SULOGIN=no
DELAYLOGIN=no
UTC=yes
VERBOSE=no
FSCKFIX=no
RAMRUN=no
RAMLOCK=no
root@host # python
Python 2.6.6 (r266:84292, Dec 26 2010, 22:31:48)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import etcDefault
>>> etcDefault.read('/etc/default/rcS')
{
'UTC': 'yes',
'RAMLOCK': 'no',
'SULOGIN': 'no',
'VERBOSE': 'no',
'TMPTIME': '0',
'RAMRUN': 'no',
'FSCKFIX': 'no',
'DELAYLOGIN': 'no',
'PIPESTATUS': ['0']
}
>>>

You get all variables set during the run of the /etc/default script into a dict.
