astropy.config.get_config(packageormod=None, reload=False)[source]

Gets the configuration object or section associated with a particular package or module.

packageormod : str or None

The package for which to retrieve the configuration object. If a string, it must be a valid package name, or if None, the package from which this function is called will be used.

reload : bool, optional

Reload the file, even if we have it cached.

cfgobj : configobj.ConfigObj or configobj.Section

If the requested package is a base package, this will be the configobj.ConfigObj for that package, or if it is a subpackage or module, it will return the relevant configobj.Section object.


If packageormod is None, but the package this item is created from cannot be determined.
