Description Author  

This class can be used to implement a poll voting system.

It can present the poll form, process the votes and present the results.

The class uses a configuration file in a .ini file to define a poll question and the possible answers.

The total number of poll votes and each answer vote count is stored in the same .ini file that is also updated when an user votes.

The class uses cookies to detect whether an user has already voted. The message to show when an user votes again is also configurable in the .ini file.

Surveys are a very useful resource that appears in many sites.

Many sites keep track of survey data and vote count in databases.

This class provides an alternative solution that uses a file in the .ini format rather than databases to store the survey data.
