iniLib invalid ini filename

If I use the iniLib with
Code: [Select]
ini, new = iniLib.read("A/CHDK/DATA/initest.ini")Everythink works fine.
But when I use

Code: [Select]
ini, new = iniLib.read("A/CHDK/initest.ini")I got the error
Code: [Select]
invalid ini filename
But description says

Quote
a simple "filename" without directory and extension is stored to "A/CHDK/DATA/filename.ini"
    for other location  in "A/CHDK/" use a full path and filename
What’s wrong?

From looking at the code (but not testing) it expects the name to be in a sub-directory of CHDK/, so A/CHDK/FOO/initest.ini should work, though you must create FOO yourself.

FWIW, you could also borrow serialize and unserialize from chdkptp rlibs.lua https://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/subversion/source/HEAD/trunk/lua/rlibs.lua (edit: you'd have to take care of reading/writing the file as a string yourself)

Don't forget what the H stands for.

Thank you, yes, that's exactly the way it is...
