Only the first 32767 chars are read for legacy reasons.

So you can read the file in chunks and then use it, or parse it with a regular expression provided there are reasonable parameters.

*I see that line only appears in IniReadSection - it should probably also appear in IniReadSectionNames

AlienStar,

It sounds as if you are running into the Windows size limitation on ini files. You could try this UDF and see if it does any better.

@AlienStar - Where did you get such an INI file? Or was it something you created yourself?

If yourself, then I recommend you come up with a multiple INI file regime with an Index.ini file perhaps ... or just do as jchd recommends.

I have used the multiple INI file regime on several occasions, so can give advice if you need to go that way and wonder how.
