Write To File Command


write <text> to file <filename>


The write to file command writes text to a text file. The first write to file command executed after a file has been opened replaces that file's contents. Subsequent write to file commands append text to the file's contents. The write to file command must be preceded by an open file command and followed by a close file command. The <filename> must supply the name of the text file. The path must also be specified unless the file is located in the same directory as Oracle Media Objects.

If the file does exist, the write to file command overwrites its contents.
