        About
        ------------------
        
        This is a "fork" of the "python replacement for java.util.Properties" recipe
        on ASPN: <http://code.activestate.com/recipes/496795/> and uploaded by
        Anand Balachandran Pillai.
        
        The project is maintained by Jesse Noller <jnoller@gmail.com>, Anand Pilla
        <abpillai@gmail.com>.

        What this is
        ------------------
        This module is designed to be a python equivalent to the `java.util.Properties <http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/api/java/util/Properties.html>`_ class.
        Currently, the basic input/output methods are supported, and there are plans
        to add the XML input/output methods found in J2SE 5.0.
        
        Fundamentally, this module is designed so that users can easily parse and
        manipulate Java Properties files - that's it. There's a fair number of us
        pythonistas who work in multi-language shops, and constantly writing your own
        parsing mechanism is just painful. Not to mention Java guys are notoriously
        unwilling to use anything which is cross-language for configuration, unless
        it's XML, which is a form of self-punishment. :)
        
        Plans
        ------------------
        Here is a rough plan of features:
        
        - Keep/maintain blank lines and comments found in the original file
        - Make the module compatible with the new methods in J2SE 5.0
        - Switch to/add python property access rather than direct dictionary get/set
        - Add unit tests
        - Add unicode support
        - When-Pigs-Fly: If running within Jython, switch to java.util.Properties
        under the hood
        - Coercion/conversion to python types for values
        
        Usage
        ------------------
        This is the easy part::
        
        from pyjavaproperties import Properties
        p = Properties()
        p.load(open('test2.properties'))
        p.list()
        print p
        print p.items()
        print p['name3']
        p['name3'] = 'changed = value'
        print p['name3']
        p['new key'] = 'new value'
        p.store(open('test2.properties','w'))
        
        See also the Properties.list() method, which will return an iterator over the
        property keys
        
        Changes & News
        --------------
        
        0.4:
        - Patch from Pepper Lebeck-Jobe for handling ! style comments.
        
        0.3:
        - Keys that are added which were not part of the original file
        are simply appended to the index. Shenanigans.
        
        0.2:
        - Added an internal list (self._keyorder) to keep an ordered index of keys
        as they are encountered, so the file can we written-back out in the
        same order.
        
        0.1:
        - Initial release/fork.
        - Added setup/packaging and doc
        - added in {foo} style references for previous properties, thanks to N B
        on ASPN.
