Function writes an optional list of string expressions to a file that was previously opened with OpenWrite function, and then writes the Windows End-of-Line character sequence after all the expressions have been written.

 

If no expressions, or numeric variables are supplied, then WriteLine just writes the End-of-Line character sequence.

 

For Windows, the End-of-Line sequence is ASCII character 10 for Line Feed. Windows text  file editors like NotePad will interpret this sequence as the start of a new line.  If more than one parameter is passed, they are separated by commas for ease of using CSV formatting to simplify file use in spreadsheet programs.

 

Syntax:

fileManager.WriteLine( fileNumber [, expression2] [, expression2] [, etc...] )

 

Parameter:

fileNumber

The file number, when more than one file has been opened.

[, expression]

  '  Write out the line to the current file.
  fileManager.WriteLine( fileNumber, lineString )
