Subject: read in files with special seperators

Hadn't seen any response to my post under the old ticket (http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bug.html?id=14918), so I figured I'd move it to a new one. From: steven@knowmad.com Show quoted text

To me it looks like you could then set the default seperator to anything you wanted... like say '-' or even '=>'. Would Config::Std read in files with special seperators if you set the seperator in the def_sep option? If not, then I would like to add that to the wishlist. :) Thnx for the great package. ~Steven

No. def_sep is only for output purposes. Show quoted text

Sorry, but I'm not intending to add that functionality. The whole point of Config::Std was to force people to use one standard layout and syntax in config files. If I could have gotten away with it, I would have only allowed one separator. But it proved impossible to choose between : and = (half the people I asked wanted one, half wanted the other).

Thnx for the kind words. :-) Damian
