Hi,

I need the best format to write a large DAT file with numbers from a loop.

idea:

openfile of some sort
For c1 = 1 to x
For c2 = 1 to y
For c3 = 1 to z
Write (c1,c2,c3,c1*c2*c3) to a file in some number format
next
next
next
closefile of somesort


In other words which keywords do I use? FilePut, FileWite etc.
If anyone has an example I'd appreciate it very much....

thnx

Marc

If it was me doing this then I'd put all the values into a table and simply save the table to CSV.
I would think that this would be faster than writing each value to the file separately.

Hi guys,
could be darn question...

If large data will be splited in two or more data files and then do some filters in opening a necessary file where to read particular data, is it an advantage in some way or not?
