The fileWriteAll function writes the specified argument as the entire contents of the specified path and file name {filePathName}.


The fileWriteAll function is used to write the entire contents of a file from memory. For instance the following Lisp code shows how to write the entire contents of the test.txt file from memory. Notice how the _path variable is appended to the file name to make sure that a full path and file name are passed to the fileReadAll function.

(fileWriteAll (append _path "/" test.txt") fileContents) ;; Write the entire contents of test.txt



Expression:(fileWriteAll filePathName fileContents) ;; Writes the entire contents of the specified path and file name

Arguments Name Type Description
Argument:filePathNameString Text The path and file name to be written.
Argument:fileContentsString Text ByteVector The contents of the file to be written.

Returns: Always returns true
