 */write [-cidna l<line> s<text> w<wildcard> r</regex/>] <filename> [text]* 

 Writes lines to a text file. 

 *Switches* 

 -c - Clears the entire file before writing to it. 
 -i - Inserts the text at a given line instead of replacing it. 
 -d - Deletes the given or last line. 
 -n - Prevent adding [[$crlf]] at the end of the text. 
 -a - Appends the text to an existing line. 
 -l - Line number for the line to write/modify/delete. 
 -s - Operates on a line that matches the scanned <text>. 
 -w - Operates on a line that matches the scanned <wildcard> pattern. 
 -r - same as -w - but uses a regular expression match. 

 *Parameters* 

 &lt;line&gt; - The line number to find. 
 &lt;text&gt; - The text to scan. 
 &lt;wildcard&gt; - Wildcard pattern to match. 
 &lt;/regex/&gt; - Regex pattern to match. 
 &lt;filename&gt; - The file name to manipulate. 
 [text] - The text to be written to the file. 

 *Example*
