Methods of storing variables for future program runs

Recommended Posts

Mechaflash

Is there a method in place for storing variables for future program runs?

My first thought is just to make some sort of configuration text file and just create a line with what I want as the variable, then have the program extract the line into a variable when it runs next time.

Is there a better method than this?

Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped using ladies scented body wash and switched to Old Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re on a boat with the man your man could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an oyster with two tickets to that thing you love. Look again, the tickets are now diamonds. Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. I’m on a horse.”

mechaflash213,

Look at ini files - there are easy-to-use functions in AutoIt to write and read them. :oops:

Looks like exactly what I need. :bye: Transitioning from a scriptor to a programmer is pretty fun :oops:

The Windows registry is also an option. If you go this route, HKCU would be preferred over HKLM since HKLM usually requires elevated rights.


Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

Ah that's a good one too.

I was thinking about my project over lunch... and I was thinking that the ini file would work great because I may want to have multiple machines with the program having access to that same ini file over the network to make the programs 'collaborate' with each other and react based on the stated settings put into the ini.
