Action sections

Section [FileWrite]

Disable=

A boolean

If true, nothing will be written.

File=

A format string of a GIO file URI

The file to write to.

This can be any URI supported by GIO on your platform.

Writing operations are done asynchronously.

Template=

A file name, containing a format string

The file name is not a file URI, no data references may be used here.

The whole file content is taken as a format string.

If Template= is given, String= is ignored.

String=

A format string

The string to write. The string is used as-is, so you have to write "\n" at the end of the string if you want to write lines.

Truncate= (defaults to false)

A boolean

If true, the file will be truncated before writing to it.
