which file to use to save a path to database

Hi. Need your advice. The application I am working on will be cross-platform (at least Windows and OSX). I need to create a file that will keep the path to a database (a text file) that the application will be using. A user should be able to easily edit the path if needed. No intention to use registry in Windows.

Would an ini file be a good solution for both platforms? I am not that familiar with how easy it is to locate and edit an ini file on Mac. I understand that other solutions may be an xml file or plist in OSX.

Your advice is much appreciated.
