    can i create file with lscript


    i know it 's possible to write inside a existing text file but i want to know if there is a way to create and write a text file with lscript.

    it's to save and stock some value without to have the right scene open.

    thanx for help

    Yes, it's just as easy as opening a file that already exists.
    Just create a File OA with a new path/filename, and write to it. Don't forget to close it before loading....

    But for storing values, it would be better to use the premade Store() and Recall() functions.

    arrghh !!!
    shame on me !!!!

    thanx for all Blochi

    another question if you want :

    i would like to know how to get the " objectcount" of a scene.
    i read the doc and a find nothing about it ( ther's pointcount, polycount but nothing for object.
    the goal is to check if a specific object is present in a scene.
    there a code in doc :

    // Use the firstSelect() and nextSelect()
    // methods to cycle through the objects.
    obj = scene.firstSelect();
    obj = scene.nextSelect();

    but it doesn't work in my lightwave although i would make a loop with the "CommandInput" command.

    thanx again

    Here's the method I am using in a Script to export a RIB file:
        obj = Mesh();
        obj =; 
        obj = Light();
        obj =; 
    Well, I am not using the info() function, but it serves to demonstrate that it's working.
