Parsing INI Files with Bash
cfg.parser () {
fixed_file=$(cat $1 | sed 's/ = /=/g') # fix ' = ' to be '='
IFS=$'\n' && ini=( $fixed_file ) # convert to line-array
ini=( ${ini[*]//;*/} ) # remove comments
ini=( ${ini[*]/#[/\}$'\n'cfg.section.} ) # set section prefix
ini=( ${ini[*]/%]/ \(} ) # convert text2function (1)
ini=( ${ini[*]/=/=\( } ) # convert item to array
ini=( ${ini[*]/%/ \)} ) # close array parenthesis
ini=( ${ini[*]/%\( \)/\(\) \{} ) # convert text2function (2)
ini=( ${ini[*]/%\} \)/\}} ) # remove extra parenthesis
