Hello,
I am trying to write to a string to a BaseFile using WriteString() using the C++ API. When I open the file in a texteditor I see a lot of extra characters.

I tried doing the same thing with COFFEE and it works fine.
Any suggestions?

Regards
/Filip

WriteString() writes a C4D C++ String to file (which contains the string length and is usually Unicode encoded). The files that BaseFile writes are basically binary. If you want to write ASCII, best to use either WriteBytes() or WriteChar().

OK, thanks. So what I have done now is to write my own string-writing function that takes a string and writes it to a file one charater at a time using WriteChar(). This works fine, but is there a more efficient way of doing this?

My plugin will be writing a lot of text to a file, so the faster the better!

but i did something like this...
i got from the String class via GetCString a c-string...
and used WriteBytes from the file class...
