As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested source page into HTML format (assuming markdown format). Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file. A member file download can also be achieved by clicking within a package contents listing on the according byte size field.


Deprecated. Use the :command:file(WRITE) command instead.


write_file(filename “message to write”… [APPEND])

The first argument is the file name, the rest of the arguments are messages to write. If the argument APPEND is specified, then the message will be appended.

NOTE 1: :command:file(WRITE) and :command:file(APPEND) do exactly the same as this one but add some more functionality.

NOTE 2: When using write_file the produced file cannot be used as an input to CMake (CONFIGURE_FILE, source file …) because it will lead to an infinite loop. Use :command:configure_file if you want to generate input files to CMake.
