If you want a real mailing list try the "Linux C Programming" list
hosted by linux.org it has a homepage here:
On a side note; I've just GPLed a .ini file library, its pure ANSI-C so
it should compile on just about any platform. Its very robust in the
sense that it allows very strange .ini files with keys written using
extra spaces/TABs and weird capitalization.

I plan to interpret / convert an ini-file like this:
property 1 = value 1
property 2 = value 2
property 3 = value 3
property 1 = value 4
As can be seen, the names of the sections, properties, values may contain
spaces. Seperators are new line, [ ] for section heads, '=' for
property/value. As this format is not only default for ini-files in windows,
but also for many *rc config files, there should be ready made routines in c
or c++ or even qt to handle such files.
Any hints welcome
P.S.: Being used to C and Java, what would be the best option for developing X
apps? c++/qt? v c++ gui? gtk? java? ... ? thanks!
