This file contains brief information about configuring, testing
and installing Grecs library. It is *not* intended as a replacement
for the documentation, and is provided as a brief reference only.
The complete documentation for Grecs is available in the
doc/ subdirectory, both as a set of manpages and as texinfo

Grecs is a library for parsing structured configuration files from
C programs. A structured configuration file has hierarchical
structure, with block statements enclosing lower-level
statements. Such configurations files are used by many programs, such
as, e.g. Bind or Dico.
Grecs provides primitives for parsing such files into an internal
tree-like structure and for basic operations on such structures. These
operations include value lookups by keyword paths, traversing trees
recursively, joining several trees together, reductions, etc.
New versions of Libgrecs are available for download from
