Type Function Library io.* Return value none Revision 2018.3381 Keywords io, write, file See also io.open()
In the normal mode, this function writes to the standard output (
stdout) which defaults to the Corona Simulator Console if io.output() has not been called with a file name. This is equivalent to

For security reasons, you are not allowed to write files in the
system.ResourceDirectory (the directory where the application is stored). You must specify the
system.cachesDirectory parameter in the system.pathForFile() function when opening the file for writing. See io.open() for details.
