NAME

write # - write to a sequential file

SYNOPSIS

write #FileNum[, ExprList]

DESCRIPTION

Write # is similar to print #.  The difference is that write # inserts commas between the displayed items, delimits strings with quotation marks, positive numbers are not preceded by blanks.  If the ExprList is omitted, a blank line is output.  A newline is output following the last item in the list. 

FileNum is the number under which the file was opened for output.  ExprList is a list of numeric and/or string expressions, separated by commas or semicolons. 

EXAMPLE

The program
	   rem create a file
	   open "logo" for output as 1
	   w$ = "Basmark"
	50 write #1, w$
	   rem read length of "logo"
	   v = lof(1)
	   print v
	   close 1
would write "Basmark" to the file "logo" and print its length:
	 10

SEE ALSO

print #, write

DIAGNOSTICS

If FileNum is less than 1 or greater than the maximum number of open files, or if FileNum is not open, a "Bad file number" error occurs. 

If FileNum is open for random access, an "Illegal function call" error occurs.
