INI files are saved using UTF-8 encoding.
To create a new section, run the program with the
Write command and specify the name of the desired section. If this section does not exist in the INI file, it will be created automatically.
All lines in INI files that start with the character
; are comments.
The file comment is the comment before the first section.
Each time the program is run with the
WriteFileComment command, one line is added to the end of the current file comment.
A section comment is between the section name and the first section key.
Each run of the program with the
WriteSectionComment command adds one line to the end of the current comment for the specified section.
I wrote this program many years ago for my own use. I use it very often, maybe it will also be useful to someone.
