ds_priority_write

Writes the data structure to a returned string. This enables the structure to be saved in something like an .ini file for future use.

Syntax:

ds_priority_write(id);


Argument Description
id The id of the data structure to check.


Returns: String


Description

This function returns a string which can then be stored or transferred to another data structure using the ds_priority_read function.

NOTE: The returned string is not a human readable string, but rather a dump of the contents of the data-structure


Example:

var str;
ini_open("save.ini");
str =ds_priority_write(p_queue);
ini_write_string("P_Queues", "0", str);
ds_priority_clear(p_queue);
ini_close();

The above code opens an ini file and then writes a string containing the information stored in the ds_priority queue indexed in the variable "p_queue". The priority queue is then cleared and the ini file closed.
