SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       const char *get_config_string(const char *section, const char *name,
       const char *def);

DESCRIPTION
       Retrieves a string variable from the current config file. The section
       name may be set to NULL to read variables from the root of the file, or
       used to control which set of parameters (eg. sound or joystick) you are
       interested in reading. Example:

          const char *lang = get_config_string("system", "language", "EN");


RETURN VALUE
       Returns a pointer to the constant string found in the configuration file.
       If the named variable cannot be found, or its entry in the config file is
       empty, the value of `def' is returned.
