How do I create .INI files?

In the production of my first proper program in C++ Builder, I need to know how to create a .INI file to store volume settings, etc in.  If anyone can tell me the easiest possible way I can do this, I'd appreciate it.

Windows provides xxxPrivateProfilexxx functions like to manipulate the contents of ini files
   GetPrivateProfileString
   GetPrivateProfileInt
   SetPrivateProfileString
   SetPrivateProfileInt
 etc... See your manual, or ask :)

Hi use the following function      WritePrivateProfileString("CONFIGFILENAME","CFILENAME","D:\\temp\\prasanna.ini","Prasanna.ini");
Note if the file is not found in the specified directory then it will create file in windows directory in this case prasanna.ini will be created in windows directory
then U can use other functions like WritePrivateProfileString or WritePrivateProfileInt to write the info in specified section
Hopr this helps
