INI 1.0Fran Finnegan
Edit .INI files from DOS


Ini allows you to update your .INI files quickly at a DOS prompt.

Do NOT alter your .INI files unless you understand what you are

Usage Notes:

This is not a Windows program.

Ini is executed with the following DOS command line syntax:

INI file section key value

The "file" parameter is the filename of any .INI file that you are
changing. The format of .INI files is detailed in WININI.TXT in
Windows 3.0 and WININI.WRI in 3.1, which is in your main Windows

The "section" parameter is the name of the section within the file
that you are changing. Although section names have square brackets
around them ([ ]) in the actual .INI file, it is not necessary to
include the squater brackets around this section name on the command
line when you run INI.

The "key" parameter is the name of the variable within the section
that you are adding, changing, or deleting. The key is the part of
an .INI file entry that appears on the left side of the equal sign.

"Value" is the text string that the key is being set to. The value
appears on the right side fo the equal sign. To remove an entry,
set fvalue to "nul" on the .INI command line.

If section, key, or value contains blanks or other punctuation, the
paramter should be enclosed in double-quotation marks (" "). By
following this standard DOS convention, the entire double-quoted
string is considered by DOS to be a single parameter. For example,
"PCL / HP Laser Jet, HPPCL, LPT1:" is a possible value for the
"device" key in the "windows" section of the WIN.INI file.
