menu status {
Moo
.run open opera {
/set %proxy $read(proxy.txt)
/writeini -n C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini proxy "HTTP Server" %prox
/run C:\Program Files\Opera\opera.exe %site

change C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini to "C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini" and add an extra }

with that change, I get the following in the ini file...

"HTTP="Server""

(instead of HTTP Server=68.157.124.70:80 or something)

yes you can't have spaces in the part before the "=" as far as i know.

Re: writeini help - 02/11/03 08:35 PM

so there's no way to edit this ini file, then?

change http server %prox to httpserver %prox

it might be helpful to use httpserver %proxy

You could do it with a /write instead of a /writeini.

Just overwrite the line.

.run open opera {
/set %proxy $read(proxy.txt)
/write -l221 C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini HTTP Server= $+ %proxy
/run C:\Program Files\Opera\opera.exe %site
}

still not getting any change at all

you need the quotes: "path"

Its a bug i think, u could get around it by doing this:

You need to write 2 lines for a valid ini format:

/write -l221 "C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini" [proxy]
/write -l222 "C:\Program Files\Opera\Opera6.ini" HTTP Server= $+ %proxy

Alot of trouble for a small bug..
