NscdConf - file ``/etc/nscd.conf``

This module parses the contents of the file ``/etc/nscd.conf``.

Each line of the ``nscd.conf`` file specifies either an attribute and a value,
or an attribute, service, and a value. Fields are separated either by SPACE
or TAB characters.  A '#' (number sign) indicates the beginning of a comment;
following characters, up to the end of the line, are not interpreted by nscd.

The function ``service_attributes`` provides information on the lines that
contain a service column such as `passwd` and `group` in the examples below.
The function ``attribute`` can be used to obtain values for attributes not
associated with a service such as `server-user` and `debug-level` in the

Sample content of the ``nscd.conf`` file looks like::

    #       logfile                 /var/log/nscd.log
    #       threads                 4

    #       stat-user               somebody

    #       reload-count            5
