How do I read from an INI file in Visual C++ 6.0? I have experience with GetPrivateProfileString in VB 6.0, but not sure on what to do in C++. I assume I have to define the API appropriately, then I can simply call it just as I do in VB.
Any help would be very much appreciated. I will also search the knowledgebase.
None yet. This is for an existing DLL that is fairly sophistocated; however, it has no facility built into it to read from an INI file. I would suggest reading from an XML file, but I don't know if that is possible with Visual C++ 6.0. I can read a line from a file with the existing code, so if I have to, I will modify that code to read the lines in and then parse out the value I need. It would be so much easier with the code to read values directly from an INI file, though.
