    Using Configuration Files with C on UNIX

    I have done programming on the Windows platform and I know that people use .ini files. I am now starting to program on a UNIX platform and would like to know if there is a UNIX supported .ini type configuration file. I would also like to know if there are any commands in C that allow manipulation and reading from the config file.

    The configuration files in unix are in the /etc , /etc/rc directories usually.

    Appart from unix itself rc files, which usually follow some convension, applications do their own thing half the time.
