To save a list, should I use the Registry or a File?
Posted on 1999-11-15
My program utilizes a list stored in an array. I would like the user to be able to modify the list, and have the changes available the next time the user runs the program. This program already utilize Registry values for a number of variables. Should an array of values be saved in the Regisrty? If so, how? Bare-in-mind, the number of elements in the array can vary according to what the user enters. Alternately, should I just write/read the values to/from a file? Is so, in which directory should I place it?
I am using VB 6.0
