WriteStr

Write variables to a string

Declaration

Source position: system.fpd line 70

procedure WriteStr(

  out S: string;

  Args: Arguments

);

Description

WriteStr behaves like Write, except that it stores its output in the string variable S instead of a file. Semantically, the WriteStr call is equivalent to writing the arguments to a file using the Write call, and then reading them into S using the Read call from the same file:

var
  F : Text;
begin
  Rewrite(F);
  Write(F,Args);
  Close(F);
  Reset(F);
  Read(F,S);
  Close(F);
end;  

Obviously, the WriteStr call does not use a temporary file.

WriteStr is defined in the ISO Extended Pascal standard. More information on the allowed arguments and the possible formatting can be found in the description of Write.
