Data interpretation using Python


I am working as a system administrator and for automation purposes, I started learning python, finishing the beginner track. I am now facing a small issue as I am working on a script that will read a profile file (.txt file from OS) and based on it's findings, it will do certain actions. For example, let's say that in the profile.txt file I have: parameter_1 = X parameter_2 = Y

Was wondering if somebody can help by pointing me to a certain python library (or even better, if I can find such a course on Treehouse) which I can use in my script in order to interpret the parameter values found in the profile.txt file.

Thank you
