DESCRIPTION

       These functions allow you to extract information from the server config files.

       Ns_ConfigGetBool(section, key, valuePtr)

              Examines key in section and returns NS_TRUE for values 1, y, yes, on, t,  or  true,
              case  insensitive,  and  sets valuePtr to 1.  Returns NS_FALSE for values 0, n, no,
              off, f, false, case insensitive, and sets valuePtr to 0.

       Ns_ConfigGetInt(section, key, valuePtr)

              Examines key in section and attempts to convert to an integer value.   On  success,
              returns  NS_TRUE,  otherwise  NS_FALSE.  The  value  of  the integer is placed into
              valuePtr.

       Ns_ConfigGetInt64(section, key, valuePtr)

              Like Ns_ConfigGetInt, but with INT64 data instead of system-native int types.  This
              function isn't available on WIN32.

       Ns_ConfigGetPath(server, module, ...)

              Get the full name of a config file section if it exists. Returns a pointer to to an
              ASCIIZ string of the full path name, or NULL if that path  is  not  in  the  config
              file.  The  server  and/or  module  parameters  may  be NULL and must be followed a
              variable list of additional parameters, the last element of which must be NULL.

              Examples:
              Ns_ConfigGetPath("server1", "nscp", NULL)
               returns  "ns/server/server1/module/nscp"
              Ns_ConfigGetPath("server1", "nscp", "users", NULL)
               returns  "ns/server/server1/module/nscp/users"
              Ns_ConfigGetPath(NULL, "globalmod", "subsect1", "subsect2", NULL)
               returns  "ns/module/globalmod/subsect1/subsect2"

       Ns_ConfigGetSection(section)

              Returns an Ns_Set of the section's parameters, or NULL  if  the  section  does  not
              exist.

       Ns_ConfigGetSections()

              Returns  a pointer to an array of pointers to Ns_Sets, one for each config section.
              The result is a malloc'ed copy of the config sections.

       Ns_ConfigGetValue(section, key)

              Returns a pointer to the value of the key in section, or NULL if  the  key  doesn't
              exist.

       Ns_ConfigGetValueExact(section, key)

              Case sensitive equivalent of Ns_ConfigGetValue.
