[kwlug-disc] BASH script and config file

I'm writing a bash script. It unzips a collection of zip files, then
processes each of the files within with another tool. That part works.
it's time-consuming, but it works.
I'd like to make it less time-consuming. In some cases it makes sense
to only process some of the many files in each zip. The filenames are
predictable. So perhaps a config file sort of like this would work:
# config file
# Foo files are processed for foo
# bar files are processed for bar
barfile # and everybody likes bar
# with comments and blamk lines for readability
# and typos
; and semi-colon comments
# baz files are for baz, but we don't need any steenking bazzes.
How do I get this to return foofile and barfile so that I can use it
them in my for file in ... ?
If the end of line comment at barfile is adding complexity I can drop
it. (And the ; too)
Thanks for the help and best regards,
