Source Body

function loadINI($data, $namespace = null)
        // Load a string into the given namespace [or default namespace if not given]
        $handler =& JRegistryFormat::getInstance('INI');

                 * We want to leave groups that are already in the namespace and add the
                 * groups loaded into the namespace.  This overwrites any existing group
                 * with the same name
                foreach (get_object_vars($ns) as $k => $v) {
                        $this->_registry[$namespace]['data']->$k = $v;
        return true;
