initool lets you manipulate the contents of INI files from the command line.

It is a rewrite of an earlier program by the author called "iniparse", which was written in Object Pascal for MS-DOS and later ported to Windows. initool has a backwards compatible command syntax but its operation differs; rather than modify INI files in place it outputs the modified file text to standard output.

To install initool, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install initool --version 0.6.1

To upgrade initool, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade initool --version 0.6.1

Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
