@implementation Application(MiscAppDefaults) 

// Three core methods first...

// Register a set of defaults under the application's name.
- (int) registerDefaults:(const NXDefaultsVector) v
    return NXRegisterDefaults( [NXApp appName], v );

// Return the requested default value as a string.
- (const char *)defaultValue:(const char *)defName
    return NXGetDefaultValue( [NXApp appName], defName );

// Set a default value.  This adds the value to the internal
// defaults cache and also to the user's .NeXT/.NeXTdefaults database.
// Returns what NXWriteDefault() returns (1 on success, 0 on failure)
- (int)setDefault:(const char *)defName to:(const char *)defValue
    return NXWriteDefault( [NXApp appName], defName, defValue );

// -----------------------------------------------------------------
// The rest of the methods are wrappers and format converters.

// Return a default value as an integer.
// Note that if the default has never been set, or has been set to
// something other than an integer, 0 will be returned.
- (int) defaultIntValue:(const char *)defName

// Return a default value as a Boolean.
// We return YES if the string value is "YES", NO if it's anything else
// (including if it has never been set.)
- (BOOL) defaultBoolValue:(const char *)defName
    const char *v = [self defaultValue:defName];

// is true, NO otherwise.
- (int)setDefault:(const char *)defName toBool:(BOOL)defValue

// For back compatability -- don't use these anymore as they will
// definitely go away in the future!
