f = fso.CreateTextFile("c:\\testfile.txt", true);
f.WriteLine("This is a test.");
Function WriteLineToFile
   Const ForReading = 1, ForWriting = 2
   Dim fso, f
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   Set f = fso.OpenTextFile("c:\testfile.txt", ForWriting, True)
   f.WriteLine "Hello world!"
