FWRITE

Purpose: Writes data to a binary file.

Formats:   1)     FWRITE    ID    variable    type    <byte ordering>
                    2)     FWRITE    ID    $variable    size
                    3)     FWRITE    ID    memory(x)    size    type    <byte ordering>
 

Notes:      These statements will write data to a file in the form designated by the  type  parameter.  The  byte ordering  parameter is  B  for big endian,  L  for little endian (default)  and is optional.

Form 1:  The single value in  variable  is written to the file.

Form 2:  Use this to write  size  characters of the  $variable  text string to the file.

Form 3:  Writes  size  values to the file from the memory array starting at the location specified by  x.
