I'm writing a program, which I'm trying to get as portable as possible. Trying not to rely on too many libraries.
I need to store some data, such as large paragraphs of text as well as program settings. What's the best way to do it? Flexibly... I'd use XML, but I'd rather not write a parser or implement a XML library... do I have any other feasible options -- other than designing my own format?
Thanks in advance :)
