Write File Action
This action creates a step to create a text file or append text to a file.
Filename: The filename to write the text to. Any non-existent subdirectories will be created before creating the file.
Text: The text to write to the file.
Note: Bracket characters [ and ] and the percent sign character % within step fields have special meaning in a step field.
Ensure file is not read-only: Removes the read-only attribute of the file before overwriting or appending.
Ignore special characters: If checked, the above processing of special characters for macro references and script expressions will not be performed and escaping (doubling) will not be needed.
Behavior: Determines whether to overwrite, append, or prepend to an existing file.
Encoding (code page): The encoding or Windows code page that will be used when writing the file (optional). If left blank, the system code page (CP_ACP) will be used. Other common encodings for files are UTF-8, Unicode (UTF-16 LE), Windows-1252, Cyrillic, Chinese, and other encodings or code pages supported by Windows (see the Microsoft Global Development web site and MSDN Unicode topics for more details).
Write BOM: If checked, writes a byte order mark to the beginning of the file. Applies only when creating or replacing a file and using an encoding of UTF-8 or Unicode.
