I've got a EditBox with some text in and I want to write this to a text file.

But if I had something like


It writes it to the file as


I'm currently using BinStream to write it to the file as StringStream puts in quotation marks either side.

"ThisisMyText" and I don't need them in the text file.

i'm guessing you're using:
print (myStringstream as string) to:myFile
instead of
format (myStringstream as string) to:myFile

using format will not put the "" around the string.

As for your multi line string problem, could that be because you are using binstream? I've never used a binstream before so i can't be certain of that.

If not, another solution comes to mind:
parse your multiline string by using something like:
myStringArray = filterstring myMultiLineString "\n"
and then
for s in myStringArray do format "%\n" s to:myFile
