Storing Application or User Settings

I am a longtime Windows developer, using VB, VB.Net, C#, etc. and am making the (sometimes) painful transition to FMP. In a Windows-based application, I would either save settings in an INI file (old days) or an XML file (newer days) or in .Net in one of the provided settings areas.


Now, I'm looking for guidance on how this should be done in FMP. A given solution may be for Windows, or Mac or GO for that matter.

In my past experience, it seemed more reasonable to have an external file that the application would read during startup.

A simple example of an application setting would be the location of the folder where documents are created by FMP, such as when a user chooses to save a report as a PDF.

Can somebody suggest best practice for storing application settings in FMP?
