GenINI version 1.8 released

Monday September 30, 2019  By: Peter Moylan

Version 1.8 of the GenINI package is now available. You can get it from

or from

or from Hobbes incoming.

The test versions 1.8a, 1.8b, and 1.8c are no longer supported and
should be deleted if you have them.

The package contains
- a utility DumpINI to convert a file from INI format to TNI format;
- a utility LoadINI to convert from TNI to INI format;
- several Rexx utilities to deal with INI and TNI files.

Source code is included. Anyone wanting to use the TNI option in their
own software can do so royalty-free.

This version of GenINI expects to use INIDATA.DLL and XDS230M.DLL, which
are not included. If you don't already have them, you can download
which contains the two DLLs. (And the source code for INIDATA.DLL) This
should be a one-off download, because is unlikely that INIDATA.DLL will
be revised very often.

Recommendation: although these DLLs can be anywhere on your LIBPATH,
ArcaOS users should probably put them in \usr\local\lib. If your \usr
doesn't have a "local" subdirectory, please read the INIData
documentation for the suggested subdirectory structure.
