you have OR a kilometric path OR your OS must search recursively through the full Apps folder.



Yep.

Both of them are slow.



IMO it can be optimized quite well....

I must admit that I didn't look at it Smile I'll do sometimes.
But believe me, that's a known problem with no 100% reliable solution.



I would rather say with no POSIX *portable* solution. Other than that, you can easily read them from 'proc'.

Anyways, I don't like the windows way of putting config files (sometimes) on app executable folder. That one should be write protected and not accessible by normal app usage. Like it is now it's an opened door for malware and/or coding mistakes.
In app folder should go only fixed config files, I mean files with data not modifiable by program itself. The rest should go on registry or, as in linux, on user owned folders.



It all depends. For me, putting it to .exe, makes maintainance of my software deployments much much simpler. I can even use tricks like two modes of single application, only adjusted by different config.

OTOH, with multiple users, there is a problem Smile 'home' has its merits.

In any case, we have Win32 to support and *xes to support. We have to play by rules here...
