iniToStruct(iniFiles)

Last updated April 26, 2012

Version: 0 | Requires: CF9 | Library: CFMLLib

Description:
This differs from another UDF on this site in two ways: 1) will parse multiple .ini files 2) will not replace an existing struct. In other words, if app.ini has a [global] section and dev.ini does too, the result.global structure will not be wiped out, but rather will instead be augmented or have individual values overwritten

Return Values:
Returns a struct.

Example:

sample ini files:

app.ini 
--------
[global]
datasource=myDSN
appName=Monkey

dev.ini
--------
[global]
datasource=myDSN
appName=Chimp


application.config = iniToStruct(["/app.ini","/dev.ini"]);

result:
application.config.global.datasource --> "myDSN"
application.config.global.appName --> "Chimp"

Parameters:

Name Description Required
iniFiles Array of ini files. Yes

Full UDF Source:

 *

 * @return Returns a struct.
