Ini Question

Read ini file which does not have any section?

My ini file does not have any section. It has following data


com.ibm.rcp.toolbox.admin/toolboxvisibleChild=false
com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.community/defaultAuthType=ST-DOMINO-SSO
com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.brokerbridge/startBroker=false
com.ibm.collaboration.realtime.webapi/startWebContainer=true


I want to use function.

[DllImport("kernel32")]
private static extern int GetPrivateProfileString(string section,
string key,string def, StringBuilder retVal,
int size,string filePath);


My problems


  1. I cannot give section name in the function because I dont have any

  2. If I give section name null, it returns nothing

  3. I don't want to use brute force like ReadAllText

Answer

Here's a library that the author says supports section-less keys. I myself have not tried this library.
Or, you could simply edit the Ini file and add in a "header"/section name right at the top, then delete it once you're done reading.
