     Offers 6 ini functions that are extremely useful. Handy, because it has a "setup" function that specifies the filename and the number of characters you'ld like to retrieve (max) so that you don't have to re-specify them every time you write to your INI file (great if you only have one or two INI files per project). Someone else did a "complete INI module" that actually hard-code edited the ini file to find out the number of sections, and so on, but this one uses in-built features of GetPrivateProfileString. Have fun!

Read_Ini -- Returns a string with the appropriate INI key in it

Write_Ini -- Writes to a specific ini key

Read_Sections -- Returns a Chr(0) delimited string containing all the [Sections] of the INI file

Read_Keys -- Same as above, but returns all the keys=values under the appropriate section

Delete_Key and Delete_Section do just what they say =)

vbCrLf's are turned into a funky string because I noticed when writing vbcrlf's to ini files it has the tendency to screw up and actually place them on separate lines so you can't retrieve the whole thing again. The funky string is recognized by this module when you read the values in again, and converts em back to vbCrLf

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
