  12. I will be there with 2 others. Thanks
  13. Plus, if your cluster had the following: String_Name = "Hello World" Boolean_Name = True [unnamed] = False [unnamed] = True The INI file would get written as: [Cluster_Name] String_Name = "Hello World" Boolean_Name-1 = "TRUE" Unnamed_Variable-1 = "FALSE" Unnamed_Variable-2 = "TRUE" When reading this back in, we would have to assume that "Unnamed_Variable-1" is linked to "Cluster Element 2" and "Unnamed_Variable-2" is linked to "Cluster Element 3". Again this could possibly introduce a bug in your application.
  14. I agree that clusters should not have duplicate or unnamed elements. I'd be more inclined to say the VI should check for duplicate names and throw an error if it finds any. Losing data is something we certainly want to avoid.
  15. For some reason, I'm no longer getting emails about replies to this thread. Not sure sure why, it shows I'm monitoring it. I like the "in recursive call?" terminal option, but in the case of using a path for a section name (or anything that already has a '\' in it) the section name will still end up with double slashes in the config file. Though this is probably needed due to the '\' being the ini file escape character. But at least it would be predictable.
