Write Statement

Writes data to a sequential file.


Write [#]FileName, [Expressionlist]


FileName: Any numeric expression that contains the file number that was set by the Open statement for the respective file.

Expressionlist: Variables or expressions that you want to enter in a file, separated by commas.

If the expression list is omitted, the Write# statement appends an empty line to the file.

To add an expression list to a new or an existing file, the file must be opened in the Output or Append mode.

The Write# statement enters data that is enclosed by quotation marks and separated by commas into a file. You do not need to use delimiters in the list. The end of a file created with the Write# statement is indicated by a line end symbol.

Each Write statement outputs a line end symbol as last entry.

Numbers with decimal delimiters are converted according to the locale settings.
