_CP_write is equivalent to the write or writeu BASIC statements.

The equivalency is dependent upon the type parameter.

Type BASIC Statement
_CP_WRITE write string1 on expression,string2
_CP_WRITEU writeu string1 on expression,string2

The expression should be an integer file descriptor returned by the _CP_open call. This function returns -1 if an error occurs. The error code is contained in _CP_errno.


int _CP_write(int type, CPSTR* string1, int expression, CPSTR* string2)


/* Writes "hi" in item "myid" in "myfile". */
CPSTR * s = _CP_mkstr("myfile");
CPSTR * t = _CP_mkstr("hi");
CPSTR * id = _CP_mkstr("myid");
int f;
_CP_write(_CP_WRITE, t, f, id);
