Configuration files have a simple structure consisting of two parts, the stanza and key/value pairs.
# A stanza is a section of the config file. It starts with a name (or number) surrounded by square brackets on a line by itself. A config file will have one or more stanza. Each stanza continues until the next stanza or end of file. For example: <pre>[this is a stanza]
[this is another stanza]
Stanzas contain one or more ker/value pairs.
# Key/value pairs set various values such as the ID of the node. For example: <pre>myname=timothy ; There are some who call me Tim?</pre>
Config file comments are preceded with a semicolon.
