Configuration File in C++

Configuration File in C++

Configuration File in C++

Whats the configuration file called in C++ to get runtime parameters? For eg its called properties file in JAVA with extension .properties. This properties file is used to get run time parameters to be specified by the client. What is it in C++? And how to read from this configuration File.
I want this in pure C++. No VC++ or MFC.
Some sample code would be really helpful

Thanx in Advance

RE: Configuration File in C++

Are there any ways of reading the config file from my program at runtime?

RE: Configuration File in C++

I'm a little confused. Are you taking about a compiler or a program you wrote? An easy way to pass options to a compiler is to use a makefile. To use a config file in your program, you have to open the file and read it.
