Overview

ScreenSaverDefaults defines a set of methods for saving and restoring user defaults for screen savers.

Because screen savers are packaged as bundles and loaded by several different applications, it is not possible to use NSUserDefaults to store user preferences for them. ScreenSaverDefaults adds the method defaultsForModuleWithName: to get an instance corresponding to a particular module name. Screen savers should typically use their bundle identifier as the module name. Once you have an instance of screen saver defaults, you can use the normal methods of NSUserDefaults to load, store, or modify values.
