Syntax of FGLPROFILE entries

The syntax of FGLPROFILE entries is in the key = value form.


  # comment
| entry-definition

where entry-definition is:

entry = value
where entry is:
ident [.ident [.ident] [...] ] ]
and value is:
  [-]{ digit [...] }[ . digit [...] ]
| " alphanum [...] "
| {true|false}
  1. comment is a line of text that is started by a # hash.
  2. entry identifies the name of the entry. This can be a dot-separated list of identifiers.
  3. value is a numeric value, a string literal, or a boolean value (true/false).


An FGLPROFILE entry is a line in the configuration file associating a parameter name to a value that can be specified as a numeric, string or boolean.


The encoding of FGLPROFILE files must match the application locale of the program. For more details, see FGLPROFILE encoding.

The entries are defined by a name composed of a list of identifiers separated by a dot character.

FGLPROFILE entry names are case insensitive. In order to avoid any confusion, it is recommended to write FGLPROFILE entry names in lower case.

If an entry is defined several times in the same file, the last entry found in the file is used. No error is raised.

The value can be a numeric literal, a string literal, or a boolean (true/false).

Numeric values are composed by an optional sign, followed by digits, followed by an optional decimal point and digits:
my.numeric.entry = -1566.57
String values must be delimited by single or double quotes. The escape character is backslash, \t \n \r \f are interpreted as TAB, NL, CR, FF. Double the backslash to write a backslash character (\\):
my.string.entry = "C:\\data\\test1.dbf"
Boolean values must be either the true or false keyword:
my.boolean.entry = true
