## Abstract

An INI file is a configuration file that consists of key-value pairs for properties, and sections that group the properties. The name of these configuration files comes from the filename extension INI, short for initialization. The format has become an informal standard in many contexts of configuration. This SRFI provides access to the contents of an INI file.
