ini_read_string


Description

You can use this function to read a string (text) from an ini data file. Ini Files are split into sections and then each section is subsequently split into key - value pairs. So a typical ini file would look something like this:


Syntax:

ini_read_string(section, key, default);


Argument Description
section The section of the .ini to read from.
key The key within the relevant section of the .ini to read from.
default The string to return if a string is not found in the defined place (or the .ini file does not exist). Must be a string.


Returns:

String


Example:

ini_open("savedata.ini");
global.name = ini_read_string("player", "name', "Player1");
ini_close();

This will open "savedata.ini" and set global.name to the string under "save1" > "Name" in it, then close the .ini again. Should there be no string under "save1" > "Name", or there no "savedata.ini" file present, global.name will be set to "Player1".
