I might have misunderstood the quesion but the response to the Input command can be saved to a string variable. This variable can then be output to a file.

hi,

yes, you just use the writestring command

the sytax is:

writestring(stream,string$)

i.e.
writestring(myfile,"hello world!")

would write the string "hello world" to the myfile file stream.
You open a file to write to with:
myfile = writefile("myfile.dat")

If you have a string, say mystring$ = "hello bob!"
then you can write:
writestring(myfile,mystring)


The online manual page is here:
