SYNTAX

(SEND <ary> :WRITE-TO-FILE <filedescriptor> )

DESCRIPTION

The contents of the array are dumped to the specified file in binary. This is intended only to be used with :INITIALIZE-FROM-FILE. At some point other messages will likely be provided for doing more generic file I/O from arrays.

This message will likely be supported by class GRAPHIC-RELATION eventually, but is not currently.

Note that only the binary data segment of the array is stored, not the regular variables or the property list. If you need these saved, that should be done separately.
