using & updating .ini file

(1/1)

sparkythex:
I thought I read somewhere in forum about using and updating an existing,  '.ini'  file.
but now I can't seem to find a reference to it.

I can't find any examples that have an ".ini" in them.

also does mac not use ini?
or is it rare for mac to use .ini file?

when i was trying to search for them;
      out of all the files on my mac, I only have 16 files that have extension of ".ini"

.ini files - they are just information files used for preferences settings etc and end in ".ini" so the programmer/users/system knows their function.

They don't have a general format and can be either text, binary or have a special format such as XML.

Do you need to create your own .ini file or need to read some other .ini files ?

I can probably get by with out them but i was thinking it might be useful.
I can't give you an example of what i want to do.

You are right - they are certainly useful and later you will probably need something similar.
