Provide p5-Config-General package:

batfink# cat DESCR
Config::General opens a config file and parses it's contents for you. After
parsing the module returns a hash structure which contains the representation
of the config file.

The format of config files supported by Config::General is inspired by the well
known apache config format, in fact, this module is 100% read-compatible to
apache configs, but you can also just use simple name/value pairs in your
config files.
