Libconfig is a simple library for manipulating structured configuration
files, like this one: test.cfg. This file format is more compact and
more readable than XML. And unlike XML, it is type-aware, so it is not
necessary to do string parsing in application code.
Libconfig is very compact thus well-suited for memory constrained
systems like handheld devices.
The library includes bindings for both the C and C++ languages. It works
on POSIX-compliant UNIX systems (GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD)
and Windows (2000, XP and later).
