IniWrite(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",5,15)

$temp = IniRead(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",4,10000)
If IniRead(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",5,10000) > $temp Then
    MsgBox(0,"WTF","look at the comparison"&@CRLF&"15 > 10000 ?")
EndIf

$temp = IniRead(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",4,9999)
If IniRead(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",5,9999) > $temp Then
    MsgBox(0,"WTF","now look at the comparison"&@CRLF&"15 > 9999 ?")
EndIf

I am using BETA 3.2.9.1, and using XP Pro. but those shouldn't matter. Look at the two codes, nearly exactly the same, one is 10000 and the other 9999. 15 is less than both, but when in this format only registers as greater than 10000. what am I doing wrong?

Has to be a bug?

Let me see if I can explain this so you go :):P;)

IniRead basically equals:

FileOpen

FileRead

String Manipulation

Return Val

FileClose

Nothing in there shows you it would return an integer or a number. The return value is actually a string :P ...

To do what you want: Number(IniRead(etc...)) or Int(IniRead(etc...)) will work.

Ahh, you are right. Why does IniRead(@ScriptDir&"\Scores.txt","X",4,10000) return "10000" instead of 10000?

Why would it return anything other than a string? You are "reading" a string value... how can it decide that this "1234" should be a number and not a string? Easier and less error prone to just make them all strings wouldn't you think (and leave it up to the user to make that string a number if deemed neccessary)?

And why is 15 > "10000" but less than "9999"?

Strings have a numeric value... just not what is listed in that string.

15 may be greater than "abcde" but may be less than "abcd".
