This is an include version of Settings API.


About the include [top]
With INI File Reader/Writer you can easily create and parse data from a INI. It does not require any special plugin or module, only:

Code:
#include <amxmodx> #include <amxmisc> #include <ini_file>

Good job

can be this used for saving/loading players informations for example (because nvault is more code + complicated to read results)?
you could also implement Update_line/player ?

In a way yes, but I am not sure about the performance while working with a big number of data inside the file. You could save player's authid as section and organize the data between the keys.

Code:
new const FILENAME[] = "player_data.ini"; SavePlayerData(this) {     new szAuthId[MAX_AUTHID_LENGTH], iMoney;     get_user_authid(this, szAuthId, charsmax(szAuthId));     iMoney = cs_get_user_money(this); // e.g. 16000     ini_write_int(FILENAME, szAuthId, "Money", iMoney);     /* Result:     [STEAM_0:0:0000000]     Money = 16000     */ } LoadPlayerData(this) {     new szAuthId[MAX_AUTHID_LENGTH], iMoney;     get_user_authid(this, szAuthId, charsmax(szAuthId));     iMoney = cs_get_user_money(this);     ini_read_int(FILENAME, szAuthId, "Money", iMoney);     cs_set_user_money(this, iMoney); }

Update is already implemented. ini_write_* adds the key and value if the key does not already exists, otherwise it update.

AMXX 1.9 already has INI Parser, doesn't it?
https://wiki.alliedmods.net/AMX_Mod_...rser_INI.2FSMC

Which differences/improvements it has? Excluding saving ofc.

What is wrong with MeRcyLeZZ's API?

The INI Parser of AMXX only allows you to read the data and it's entirely event based (you must hook events), technically:

Code:
ParseFromINI() {     new INIParser:Parser = INI_CreateParser();     INI_SetReaders(Parser, "OnKeyValue", "OnNewSection");     INI_ParseFile(Parser, "path/to/file.ini");     INI_DestroyParser(Parser); } public bool:OnNewSection(INIParser:handle, const section[], bool:invalid_tokens, bool:close_bracket, bool:extra_tokens, curtok, any:data) {     if (!equali(section, "SectionName"))         return true;     return true; } public bool:OnKeyValue(INIParser:handle, const key[], const value[], bool:invalid_tokens, bool:equal_token, bool:quotes, curtok, any:data) {     if (!equali(key, "KeyName"))         return true;     server_print("%s=%s", key, value);     return true; }

To work with INI Parser of amxx you need to create handlers and a number of checks/code. In a way there is nothing wrong with this but it may be a hard and extensive work if you are working with multiple plugins to perform the parse and not just one. On the other hand, in Settings API or INI File Reader/Writer all you have to do is specify the file, section and key that you are looking for

Code:
new buffer[64]; ini_read_string("path/to/file.ini", "SectionName", "KeyName", buffer, charsmax(buffer));

and you can not only read as you can also adds data to the file as you already cited.

Code:
new buffer[64]; copy(buffer, charsmax(buffer), "KeyValue"); ini_write_string("path/to/file.ini", "SectionName", "KeyName", buffer); /* [SectionName] KeyName = KeyValue */

So in short, if you are looking for a simple and flexible way to work with INI files I believe both Settings API and this include are the best choices, but you are free to choose the best method for you.

Actually there is nothing wrong with MeRcyLeZZ's API, just a little bug when there is double brackets in section name (e.g. [[SectionName]]). I did the include for flexibility reason so you do not need to enable any "extra" plugin just like fvault, nfvault, dhudmessage, ROG, CromChat and whatever more; and I coded it the way I believe it is improved.

Hello again.
I did not do any test yet, but my attention stucked here:
PHP Code:
_ini_write(const file[], const section[], const key[], value[])
{
    
// some code here

    
while (!feof(hFile))
    {
        if (
fgets(hFileszBuffercharsmax(szBuffer)) == 0// HERE
            
break;

        
// some code here 
Doesn't it means that it stops to search if it finds an empty line?
So, if our file is looking this way:
PHP Code:
[sec1]
key1=value1

[sec2]
key2=value2 
it won't find [sec2] when we are looking for it, because of an empty line at the middle.
Am i right?

Actually, empty lines are equivalent to one (1) char. fgets() will only return 0 when reach the end of the file or if the file is totally empty. Well, that's what I noticed in the tests.

Code:
            // fgets=1 [Section]   // fgets=10 key=value   // fgets=10             // fgets=1 [Section]   // fgets=10 key=value   // fgets=10             // fgets=1 [Section]   // fgets=10 key=value   // fgets=10             // fgets=1             // fgets=1 [Section]   // fgets=10 key=value   // fgets=10             // fgets=0

Well, good to know. I never used to look at fgets() return when i use it.
