• file.iniGetObject()

    From MCMLXXIX@VERT/MDJ to Digital Man on Mon Sep 13 06:30:00 2010
    Would it break anything if calling file.iniGetObject("section"); returned undefined instead of an empty object if the section "section" doesn't exist in the file?

    It's kind of a pain to work around that.

    It's kind of a pain to work around that.

    I just committed a change to do that, try it and let me know. Now, one caveat is that the method will return null/undefined if the specified section doesn't exist in the .ini file *or* it contains no keys/values. The second condition may prove to be a problem for some scripts. We'll have to see.

    hmm. there's no way to have it both ways?

    e.g. empty object if the section exists with no keys/values, and null/undefined if it's not there at all

    I think I would prefer that behavior. How about you?
