Edit a text file without opening it?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to edit a .txt file (replace its entire text with the contents of a Text Var) but I'd prefer to do it "behind the scenes." I see how to rename it or change it's attributes, but not its content.... DOes anyone know if this is possible? THanks -steve

To save the content of a variable into a text file use the Variable Modify String: Save %TextVar% to "c:\test.txt" command. If the file already exists, this will overwrite the contents of the file. If it does not already exist, the file will be created.
