Initool lets you manipulate the contents of INI files from the command line. It is a rewrite of an earlier program by the same developer called "iniparse". Rather than modify INI files in place like iniparse, however, it prints the modified contents to the standard output. When given a valid command, initool first reads the INI file filename in its entirety. For the commands g, d, and s it then prints to the standard output the file's contents with the desired changes. For e it reports whether the section or the property exists through its exit status.
