Hello Giorgio!

As I said, one thing what library can do, and another thing - what it is
intended for. Destination of Boost.Spirit, as it is written in the
documentation: "LL parser framework represents parsers directly as EBNF
grammars in inlined C++". Destination of my Configurator: "easy and
flexible work with configuration files". My library designed ONLY for
this task and nothing more, because I adhere to the principle of "one
task - one library".Even a C++-novice can use my library within 3
minutes after downloading, because it has a very simple interface, but
it lets to work with files on the level of complexity comparable to

My target - useful features on the one hand and maximum simplicity of
usage on the other.
