RsyslogConf - file /etc/rsyslog.conf

The rsyslog configuration files can include statements with two different line based formats along with snippets of ‘RainerScript’ that can span multiple lines.

See http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/master/configuration/basic_structure.html#statement-types

Due to high parsing complexity, this parser presents a simple line-based view of the file that meets the needs of the current rules.
