 anyone know how to beat the 64 kb ini file limit ?

is the 64 kb ini file limit beatable ?
i need ini formatted files but need them to be able to reach 1mb or more.
 WritePrivateProfileStringA%(sectionData, 0&, "", fileName)
that's the api i'm currently using.
also what is the api to totally erase a section including the section name
?
and what's the api to delete a section field ?

There is NO way to beat this limit.  That is but one reason why Microsoft
has provided us with the Registry and encourages that INI files no longer
be used (obviously you have no choice on a 16-bit system).  Also why are
you using a 1 MB INI file?  Either write to your own text file or use a
database.  This will be more satisfactory in the long run.
