NAME

       get_config_string  -  Retrieves  a  string  from  the  configuration  file.  Allegro  game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       const char *get_config_string(const char *section, const char *name, const char *def);

DESCRIPTION

       Retrieves a string variable from the current config file. The section name may be  set  to
       NULL  to  read  variables  from  the  root  of  the  file, or used to control which set of
       parameters (eg. sound or joystick) you are interested in reading. Example:

          const char *lang = get_config_string("system", "language", "EN");

RETURN VALUE

       Returns a pointer to the constant string found in the configuration file.   If  the  named
       variable  cannot be found, or its entry in the config file is empty, the value of `def' is
       returned.
