Description

Procedure WriteBin outputs the specified data to a binary file. The variable length parameter list specifies the data to be written to the file.


Supported data types include INTEGER (2-bytes), REAL (8-bytes), LONGINT (4-bytes), CHAR (1-byte) or STRING/DYNARRAY OF CHAR (see remarks).

The bytes will be written as little-endian.

Strings will require two additional INTEGER parameters: symbol count and encoding: 0 – mac; 1 – win; 2 – system; 3 – UTF8; 4 – UTF16.

PROCEDURE WriteBin(
z  :ANY);
def vs.WriteBin(z):
    return None
