void = List_SaveToFile(sListVarName, sFullPathFilename)


This macro function is used to save the contents of a list to a file on disk at sFullPathFilename.


The macro code below loads the contents of a text file, processes each entry of the list, and then saves it back.

// load the list of country names override
List_LoadFromFile(sListCountryNames, sFullPathOfTextFile, true)
for nItem = 1 to List_Count(sListCountryNames) step 1
   // make some changes to some or all of the entries
   // ...
// save it back to file
List_SaveToFile(sListCountryNames, sFullPathOfTextFile)

When using lists, don't forget to always use the function List_Create to create your list at the top of the macro, and then the function List_Destroy to destroy it at the end of the macro.
