INI Utilities for TurboCAD

This a collection of Utilities that can be used to edit the TC settings files


Name Description

(html application)
Updated 7-Aug-2004

With TC-X TurboCAD introduced a new format for it's setting file TCW10_xml.ini. Problem is it has proved rather difficult to edit manually. This html application provides functions to address this problem until IMSI comes up with a better settings editor. It includes

  • Automatic merging functions for inserting or removing fragments of settings files (eg a color pallet) into the working settings file.
  • Unpacking/packing functions so you can edit the settings file manually.
  • Also an ACAD .pat -> xml coverting .pat files into xml suitable for merging.


Designed for use with TC-X only.
