Ok - I left out some important information in my request for help below.
The file I'm working with is a MS .NETFramework system file under
C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\CONFIG called machine.config.
It's an XML file. It uses comments to separate sections of configurations.
I'm trying to replace custom configurations under the <appSettings> node
that begins and ends with comments.
Anybody out there that has done this?
