set_config_string(3alleg4) Allegro manual set_config_string(3alleg4)NAME
set_config_string - Writes a string in the configuration file. Allegro game programming library.
void set_config_string(const char *section, const char *name, const char *val);
Writes a string variable to the current config file, replacing any existing value it may have, or removes the variable if `val' is NULL.
The section name may be set to NULL to write the variable to the root of the file, or used to control which section the variable is
inserted into. The altered file will be cached in memory, and not actually written to disk until you call allegro_exit(). Note that you can
only write to files in this way, so the function will have no effect if the current config source was specified with set_config_data()
rather than set_config_file().
As a special case, variable or section names that begin with a '#' character are treated specially and will not be read from or written to
the disk. Addon packages can use this to store version info or other status information into the config module, from where it can be read
with the get_config_string() function.

I'm trying to install a PGX32 video card on my Sparc 10 Ultra running Solaris 10.

I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)
