Writes a string to a given opened text file.


file_text_write_string(fileid, str);

Argument Description
fileid The id of the file to edit.
str The string to write to the file.

Returns: Real


With this function you can write a string to a previously opened text file. If the file already contains information, this information will be erased and the string will be written at the beginning of the file, unless you have opened the file with the file_text_open_append. You can also avoid this by using the file_text_readln function along with the file_text_eof function to loop through the contents of the file until you get to the end and then start writing.


var i, file;
file = file_text_open_write(working_directory + "\hiscore.txt");
for (i = 0; i < 10; i += 1)
   file_text_write_real(file, scr[i]);
   file_text_write_string(file, scr_name[i]);

The above code opens a file for writing and then loops through two arrays, writing each array value to a new line of the file. The file is then closed when the loop has finished.
