>>yeah, with that values. I'm still having a hard time figuring out because the ini file that I generated in windows is compose of wchar_t characters
Ohhh that is not very good. The sizeof(wchar_t) in Windows compilers is not the same as in *nix compilers. The last time I checked Windows = 2 (short int) while *nix was 4 (long). So to read the file in *nix you will probably have to read each character as a short then convert it in memory to wchar_t (a long).
I doubt you will find any *nix library that will read that windows-generated file because of the size problems I mentioned above. But what you could do is write a program to convert the entire file then use one of those library functions to parse it.
I've never heard of an INI file that isn't ASCII encoded. Too bad they don't all just die... (that is, seems odd to me people still use them, because for all their supposed simplicity they can sure give you headaches)...
