* Filename without an extension I end up with a text file that has a version number in it. This version number changes periodically. When you type the text file, it reads like this: 0d.ver I need to extract the "0d" from above and put it at the end of a line in a INI file, like so: SDB_version=0d This would be fun if I wasn't under pressure.
