Is it possible to write a consecutive line of characters?

I need to write a line to a file like so:

ab,ac,34,fe,21,g4

The only thing I can see to do with FileWrite is either choose the specific line I want to write to (which if kept the same) is writes over itself), or to append, which then lists then like so:

ab,
ac,
34,
fe,
21,
g4

Am I missing a way to do this (easily)?

Thanks,
Troy

Hy Troy,

the most easy way is to create your line inside one variable. If the line is ready, just write the variable to a file and all works fine.

something like

setvar "[line]" "[line],[newentry]"

repeat this, until your line is complete .... than

FileWrite "testfile" "Append" "[line]"

Hy Troy,

maybe it is not my day ...... but I did not get the point ... 8-(

I just tried out a little sample in NB and it works fine ...

Structures like

FileWrite "test.txt" "1" "[tmp1],[tmp2],[tmp3],[tmp4]"

are allowed and allow also a char-separated single-line output

You also can modify a special line inside a text file, eg. adding a char-separated text at the end of the line ...

FileRead "test.txt" "1" "[tmp]"
FileWrite "test.txt" "1" "[tmp],[text]"

adds to line 1 the text, contained in variable [text], separated by ","
