Write binary data to ini file?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to write binary data to an ini file and retrieve it?

Or am I gonna have to convert the binary data to something else, like hex (if that even works..).

System238,

To the best of my knowledge, ini files are limited to the printable characters, so any attempt to save binary directly to the file is likely to cause problems - such as inadvertant EOF. ;)

Your idea of converting it to hex seems to best way to go - there are a number of Binary and String functions to help you. :)
