There is no simple (magical) command that will do so.

If you can give some information about how your program holds the text (file) in memory we can help you to write that text to disk.

look at a function called atexit()
this should be called when your programs exits.

Good Luck!

Here is some code to help you do this.

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <fstream.h>

void savefiles();

main(){

 atexit(savefiles);

 return 0;

}


void savefiles(){
 //code to save your files
}


The atexit(void(__cdecl *func)( void ))
function takes a pointer to another function with no parameters. Whenever your program terminates, the function passed to atexit() will be called before any global data is destroyed.

Good Luck!
