[typo] [TYPO] config object is ... what?

People,

I'm new to Rails so I'm looking at other people's source code.

I'm poking around in the Rails code for the blog engine named 'typo':
http://typo.leetsoft.com/

I'm looking at this file:
http://typo.leetsoft.com/trac/file/trunk/app/controllers/application.rb

I see:

  before_filter :reload_settings

which is calling this:

  def reload_settings
    config.reload
  end

I'm curious about the object named 'config'.

I'm trying to figure out if it is a Rails object or Typo object.

The fact that it has a reload() method suggests to me that is an object
built from an ActiveRecord class.

I tried poking around with grep and got too many lines back since config
is such a common token.

What is the config object?

Anyone know?

-Dan
