Hi everyone! :)

Firstly, I would like to aplolgise if this is in the wrong place, wasn't quite sure where it belonged... :whistling:

I have to write 2 .ini files for a fortran77 code to call and use to get data, however I have no idea how to write one of these files.. :help: I have an old .ini file from an old program so I'm looking to modify parts of it but have no idea what any of it means. Everything I try and do with the file doesn't work when I run the program. :blink: does any one know any websites with basic .ini examples and explinations because I couldn't find any on google.. Any help would be much appreciated. :)

Thanks in advance :help:

I'm not sure there are any particular formats for ini files. They differ as per programme since they usually just store settings for them.

.Ini files have a universal format usually, unless the programmer chooses to do differently.

Normally, the names in the brackets means the name of the setting or chapter of settings.

I got a few ini examples for you in the attachements.
They come from a software called Regseeker, from Hoverdesk.net/freeware. These ini's are also copyright protected, so don't copy of it, but learn from it.
