The 'ConfigParser' module in Python 2.x, or 'configparser' in Python 3.x
<URL:http://docs.python.org/library/configparser> reads Windows
INI-style configuration files into Python data structures.

For handling command-line arguments, see 'optparse'
<URL:http://docs.python.org/library/optparse> or 'getopt'
A significant improvement is available in the 'argparse' module,
currently third-party <URL:http://pypi.python.org/pypi/argparse> but on
track for inclusion in the Python standard library
