I am looking for a library of fuctions that does basic
I/O functions (read, write, add, delete) on a textfile,
containing a key and a data value on each line. I am working
on a large project and I figured that this part was probably written many times already, so I was wondering if you could point me to a site where I could download such code.

Thanks,

I don't think you will find such a thing.    Few commercial applications would ever use such a thing, so there isn't likely to be libraries that support it.  

Windows does provide a similar function GetProfileString(), you might want to look at that.

Ooops, I forgot to mention that I am working on a Unix platform
not windows/MFC. Is there an equivalent of the CExpr class that
will run on Unix ?

Oops not that I'm aware of, I guess you could port....but that might (?) be more work that creating your own...
