libconfig – C/C++ Configuration File Library

This is an aarch64 version, for armv7hl please see


Libconfig is a simple library for processing structured configuration files, like this one: test.cfg. This file format is more compact and more readable than XML. And unlike XML, it is type-aware, so it is not necessary to do string parsing in application code.

Libconfig is very compact — a fraction of the size of the expat XML parser library. This makes it well-suited for memory-constrained systems like handheld devices.

The library includes bindings for both the C and C++ languages. It works on POSIX-compliant UNIX and UNIX-like systems (GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, FreeBSD), Android, and Windows (2000, XP and later).


Documentation is included in the distribution in the form of a texinfo manual. The documentation is also available in the following formats:



Libconfig is distributed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License. This license was chosen over the standard GNU license to allow libconfig to be used with non-free programs.
