i already know all about hash tables aswell, lol, and hash tables wont do it either, mind you if i HAVE to do them one at a time, then yes hash tables would be faster, but the thing is, if i
/write file.ini [section]
/writeini -n file.ini section item1 some data
// echo -a $readini(file.ini,section,item1)
all at the command line, i get an echo of "some data"
so it works fine, but when attempting the samething from a script, only adding 12 blank sections, then /writeini to those sections, and $readini from those section, i get nothing, so i look in the file and it writes over and over beside the [section]item1=some data
but ill just make it /writeini to a single default file and /copy the file with the 12months in it as many times as i need, that way i only writeini 1 time, and copy say 12times, instead of /writeini 144 times :|
