(** This library reads ini format property files *)

(** raised if you ask for a section which doesn't exist *)
exception Invalid_section of string

(** raised if you ask for an element (attribute) which doesn't exist,
    or the element fails to match the validation regex *)
exception Invalid_element of string

(** raised if a required section is not specified in the config file *)
exception Missing_section of string

(** raised if a required element is not specified in the config file *)
exception Missing_element of string

(** raised if there is a parse error in the ini file it will contain the
    line number and the name of the file in which the error happened *)
exception Ini_parse_error of (int * string)

(** The type of an attribute/element specification *)

(** The type of a secification *)

    exist, but can be empty *)

  (** get a value from the config object. return a list of all the
      objects bindings. If the key is listed on more than one line it
      will get n bindings, where n is the number of lines it is
      mentioned on.  raise Invalid_section, or invalid_element on error.
