Write to a File in the IFS

Back to Package

In the last session we showed you how to read the contents of a file in the Integrated File System. So, naturally, it makes sense in this session to show how to write content to an object in the IFS. This video is a 3 part story: 1. Something simple, write all the names of every library to a file.  2. Generate some JSON and write that in UNICODE to a file. 3. Write your favorite SQL into a file that can then be run in an automated manner.
