IniRead @Variant values

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I haven't found any example using this kind of data stored in .ini files, by googling the word QSettings appeared several times, so it must have to do something with it.

This is the data I want to read, is a modification date/time of a file

[FileInfo]
...
ModificationDate=@Variant(\0\0\0\x10\0%~7\x1\x1î&ÿ)

I assume that \x represents a hexadecimal value, but 1î&ÿ is not an hexadecimal value :s, but since they're two followin \x1\x1 values, î&ÿ must be other thing, like "î" and "ÿ", they are unicode chars

ÿ=0xc3bf
î=0xc3ae

4bytes for specifying a date, does \x1 have any meaning? :think:

EDIT: I might be close http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25153135/how-to-save-date-time-stamp-within-4-bytes :D

Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better
