Yup. Someone should do a little research and write an RFC or IETF draft
that explicitly defines formats with BNF grammers for a set of
organized data files like:
A simple Java Properties file format like you describe
!key1 = value1
A Windows INI file format for a little more structure
key = value
And an X delimited values format like
one, two, "three ""still three"" more three"
passwd and CSV style. I have very small and simple state-machine parsers
for the first and last formats but they do not support unicode escapes
which I think would be required.
A program should be written to model the concepts of the task it
performs rather than the physical world or a process because this
maximizes the potential for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually similar and, more important, to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
