Grammar-Based, User-Friendly Config Parser

Config::Grammar is a module to parse configuration files. The optional
second parameter to the parse() method can be used to specify the file
encoding to use for opening the file (see documentation for Perl's use open

The configuration may consist of multiple-level sections with assignments
and tabular data. The parsed data will be returned as a hash containing the
whole configuration. Config::Grammar uses a grammar that is supplied upon
creation of a Config::Grammar object to parse the configuration file and
return helpful error messages in case of syntax errors. Using the *makepod*
method you can generate documentation of the configuration file format.

The *maketmpl* method can generate a template configuration file. If your
grammar contains regexp matches, the template will not be all that helpful
as Config::Grammar is not smart enough to give you sensible template data
based in regular expressions. The related function *maketmplmin* generates
a minimal configuration template without examples, regexps or comments and
thus allows an experienced user to fill in the configuration data more
