    hi!

    Its possible, check the class BaseFile.

    You want to run code? Which code? You have to write your own parser or you take the hook for coffee to allow custom code in your plugin. See "c4d_coffee"

    Bye.

    cube->SetName("cube");
    doc->InsertObject(cube, NULL, NULL);

    Won't work. The cube is a parametric Cinema 4D object. All of the 'code' exists in Cinema 4D and the only data saved to disk that recreates it is in the c4d file.

    In order to save the cube as a text file it would be to save the parameters in some textual format and recreate the parametric object from these when read back in. So, you would need to set up a file format something like this maybe:

    OBJECT cube
    size: 100, 100, 100
    divs: 16, 16, 16
    rotation: 0, 0, 0
    translation: 0, 1, 0
    scale: 1, 1, 1
    ...

    You get the point. You'll need to have code to write a file with this information and to read the file with this information and the code to understand these keywords and formatting to recreate the object in question in Cinema 4D.
