INIreader

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description : This is a VBS script that will look for a item in a INI file. Comes in handy when you need to read INI files created by other applications. It's Read-only, no writing to INI files done here.

Option Explicit
Const ForReading = 1
Dim TheString 'The String we are looking For
Dim g_ShellObj 'Object used For sending text To a message box
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
'change INI File here
Const Filespec="\SERVERC$FILENAME.INI"
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
Set g_ShellObj = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
'Starting Main function
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''
'Proper use is: ReadFromINI(INI file, Item in brackets, Item we are looking for)
TheString=ReadFromINI(Filespec,"PutBracketItemHere","PutItemBeingLookedForHere")
''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''

'This shows what has been found
WScript.Echo Now() & " --> Ended **" & TheString & "**"
function ReadFromINI(INIfile,BracketItem,TheItem)
Dim fsoIN, Fin 'Objects For Reading.
Dim FoundBracket, FoundTheItem 'Keeps tracks of what we have found so far.

'the String until we find that equal sign.
