pyacd is a Python API. Here is a small example that shows how to use it to parse an ACD file and
retrieve basic information from it.
from pyacd.parser import parse_acd
abiview_acd = parse_acd(open('/usr/share/EMBOSS/acd/abiview.acd','r').read())
for section in abiview_acd.sections:
print [p.name for p in section.parameters]
