|Home MathPack DataTable Methods ExportAsASC|
|See also: ImportASC, Format of ASC data file|
The method ExportAsASC writes the contents of the data table along with all additional information (headers, etc.) to a readable ASCII text. The format of the text is the same as used by the method ImportASC.
Version  of ExportAsASC stores the data as a text file. The parameter FName specifies the filename (default extension ASC). Version  writes the data into the stream OutStream, and version  writes the data into the open text file OutFile. The method returns an error message string if any problem occurs during opening the file (e.g. 'file access denied' for read-only files). Version  additionally exports user-defined data which are stored in the parameter CustData. CustData has to be a two-column string array containing the name of a particular user item in the first column and its value in the second column. CustData can have any number of rows.
The parameter Precision specifies the number of decimal places to be used in the text file. Note that the numeric values of a table will be altered if the precision for exporting is too low.
