ds_stack_write

Writes the data structure out as a string.

Syntax:

ds_stack_write(id);


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


Returns: String


Description

This function returns a string which can then be stored or transferred to another data structure using the ds_stack_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_stack_write(stack);
ini_write_string("Stacks", "0", str);
ds_stack_clear(stack);
ini_close();

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