what is a .ini file?

23 May 2020, 00:19

I've heard about this file type a lot but don't actually know what it is and what it is used for. Can someone explain to me what it does and how can it be used? I've been using txt files lately as databases and stuff and am just wondering what other options I have. Thanks! :bravo: :bravo: :terms: :dance: :clap: :crazy: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :oops: :headwall: :headwall: :headwall: :superhappy: :beer:

You never encountered them before? It's really nothing AHK-specific, but text files with a certain structure in order to save information, like for example settings or configurations, between script runs.

AHK has special commands to handle them: IniWrite, IniRead and IniDelete.
I think some people even created specialized libraries.

Some other options: JSON, XML, SQLite, ...
