The File Class

Author: Jeff Stephenson

Date: 5 April 1988

 


The File Class

The File class allows you to open and write to a file on disk. This is useful for logging user input for which you have no response in the development or beta-test phase, writing utilities which allow you to position Actors on a picture and then write out the coordinates, etc.

In file: file.sc
Inherits from: Object
Inherited by: none


Properties

name

The name of the file. Defaults to "gamefile.sh".

handle

The handle by which the operating system refers to the opened file. Don't monkey with this, or you may blow away the OS.


Methods

open: [flag]

Open the file whose name is name for writing. The optional parameter flag may be either fAppend, in which case writing begins at the end of an existing file, or fTrunc, in which case the contents of the file are deleted before writing to it. If flag is not present, fAppend is assumed.

write: str [str ...]

Write the strings pointed to by str to the file.

close:
