    You can also use the WinAPI to do the hard work for you. Lookup some of these functions (GetPrivateProfile* and WritePrivateProfile*)
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    I'am on track !

    GetPrivateProfileString() worked great. Now I just have to figure out on how to convert strings to doubles/int :-)

    I guess I havenš't started with the easiest as a completly beginner with C.

    Thanks !

    your stdlib.h header file contains function to convert string to int/float/ouble etc.

    double atof( const char *nptr ); converts string to double
    int atoi ( cont char *nptr ); to int
    long atol ( ... to long

    check for some more fucntion concerning string to digit in stdlib.h ...
