Aquineo implementation of INI file format

Programming language: C#
Dependencies: .NET Framework 2.0
Operating system: Windows


Most current implementations of INI file format in C# are simple, e.g. don't prevail the sequence of sections or don't support comments. In particular, missing support for comments hinders one to process existing INI files. To overcome limitations Aquineo wrote an own INI file parser in C# resulting in a complete implementation of INI file format.


As far as we know it is a complete implementation of INI file format being characterised by the following (see also the documentation in the source code package below):
