Description (last modified by Valik)

From forum thread here.

Summary: Rewrite all the INI functionality from scratch to by-pass all Windows limitations.

Ideas to consider. Consolidated list so I don't forget these things. No promises any of this will actually appear, it is nothing more than ideas.

  • Escape characters (Presumably \n).
  • Comment support. Hash # and semi-colon ; seem to be the conventions.
  • Ticket #644 has ideas on better @error reporting.

this topic is so old, but still needed. I guess, Valik has enough more important stuff to do. So maybe this requirement could be delegated to somebody else?

Just a thought.

If somebody wanted to work on it, they would have volunteered by now.

Ref: Support topic: Array limited

This appears to be mostly fixed. I scripted a couple of demos working with >300KB ini file, and most things worked fine. The one that didn't work was IniReadSection() with huge individual sections.

Is there any solution in sight for the IniReadSection?
