Just wondering, if anyone has got a library or good link to parse a config file. If not is there any effcient way of hanlding config file, where the config is just normal text file. Its not XML file or anything.

win32 api has functions to parse them. Don't know about *nix.

Thanks Ancient Dragon for your quick reply. But unfortunatly I am on *nix environment. So looking for a lib which can support unix config file :( I Should have mentioned that.

Or is there any better way that we can parse, rather than going all the down throught the file and finding out the tag?

The link I posted is portable for both windows and *nix, but it was written in C++, not C. I have not read it closely but you might get ideas from that code.
