Serilize lib would allow this even more strait forward.not need for all this
string <-> data type conversions all the time.

For the simple program you don't need to save config parameters
programmatically anyway you could edit file directly. But if you already
have some kind of gui to update probram configuration at runtime you could
afford to include miltiindex and serialize lib either.

Quote possible. I know for a fact it has XML support.
