get_config_argv(3) Reads a token list from the configuration file. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

char **get_config_argv(const char *section, const char *name, int *argc);


Reads a token list (words separated by spaces) from the current config file. The token list is stored in a temporary buffer that will be clobbered by the next call to get_config_argv(), so the data should not be expected to persist.


Returns an argv style argument list and sets `argc' to the number of retrieved tokens. If the variable is not present, returns NULL and sets argc to zero.
