Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-574) Case-insensitive representation of INI files
Date Mon, 14 Apr 2014 20:50:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-574?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13968818#comment-13968818

Hannes H. commented on CONFIGURATION-574:
-----------------------------------------

As far as I know INI files do not have an official specification whatsoever, however I realized
that many applications do not differ between, for example, 'key = foo' and 'KeY = foo', and
the same goes for the section identifiers.

I do not ask for a general change of the behavior of the INI parser but a switch would be
nice.

Since most of the applications treat the keys of INI files case-insensitive it would be great
to be able to tell the HierarchicalINIConfiguration as well to do so.
