Add a type casting function or operator
The INI files would be shorter and more readable if the PI Connector for UFL had a type casting function or operator.
For example, if you are incrementing a Counter variable (type Int32) for each data line, and your tag names are Tag1, Tag2, etc., you currently cannot simply save data to "Tag" & Counter. You must assign Counter to CounterString (type String), and then save data to "Tag" & CounterString.
This could be simplified to "Tag" & CAST(Counter, "String") or "Tag" & (String)Counter. A type casting function or operator would avoid the intermediate variable while still making it clear that type casting is occurring.
