INI file extension - Simple Exchange Rate Information file
What is ini file? How to open ini files?
File type specification:
The INI file extension is also used for files in Simple Exchange Rate Information (SERIFF) format.
SERIFF specifies a text-based file format for representing currency exchange rates.
Applications which work with more than one currency need access to up-to-date exchange rates. While more sophisticated and dedicated systems already employ automatic management of exchange rate updates, among the public at large the traditional method of entering exchange rates by hand still prevails. Thanks to the internet (and television teletext before that), users can access a variety of sites providing exchange rate information. Events like the introduction of the euro currency have increased demand for currency conversion applications (e.g. "currency converters"). However, as the first version of this text is being written, no specification has succeeded in linking all these services and demands.
SERIFF was designed to meet certain objectives using simple and established solutions.
