Hi, I need to read/write flaots to an ini. There''s a function called GetPrivateProfileInt, but the problem is that it gets an int, not a float. Like a good n00b, I searched the forum before posting, and someone had written a function just for that. Here it is, slightly modified by me:
double GetPrivateProfileFloat(const char *section,const char *key,double def_value,const char *filename) //From gamedev.net forums.

    char buffer[64];
    )) {
	return atof(buffer);
    else {
	return def_value;
What I need is WritePrivateProfileFloat. I''ve messed with it for half an hour or so... anyone know how to accomplish this?

Here's my suggestion: Don't use INI files. They lack finesse in representing certain types of information.

Yes, this is a shameless plug for my Config Parser library. It allows persistence of bool, int, float and strings as well as composition of arbitrarily more complex objects.
