def configobj::Section::as_bool (   self,
  key 
)

Accepts a key as input. The corresponding value must be a string or
the objects (``True`` or 1) or (``False`` or 0). We allow 0 and 1 to
retain compatibility with Python 2.2.

If the string is one of  ``True``, ``On``, ``Yes``, or ``1`` it returns 
``True``.

If the string is one of  ``False``, ``Off``, ``No``, or ``0`` it returns 
``False``.

``as_bool`` is not case sensitive.

Any other input will raise a ``ValueError``.

>>> a = ConfigObj()
>>> a['a'] = 'fish'
>>> a.as_bool('a')
Traceback (most recent call last):
ValueError: Value "fish" is neither True nor False
>>> a['b'] = 'True'
>>> a.as_bool('b')
1
>>> a['b'] = 'off'
>>> a.as_bool('b')
0
