In visual C#, there was this thing where you can add a settings file and refer to a setting in that settings file in your code. With that, I was able to save user settings easily. But I can't find it in C++. Is there no settings file option? If not, what are some solutions for saving basic strings or ints so that my program won't forget them later?

In C++ for reading some static data you can use .ini format file.
Which is a format of configuration file.
For saving data one can use custom format.
And for limited data one can again use .ini format.


You'd be better off just creating a data file rather than trying to figure out the INI file format and the complexities of parsing it.
