There are loads of ways - if you want to write to the file as binary (i.e. not a text file) you can do this :

__int64 i64MyInt = 1234;
CFile fileOut("C:\\MyFile.bin", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite | CFile::shareDenyWrite);
fileOut.Write((void *)&i64MyInt, sizeof(__int64));
fileOut.Close();

This can then be read in a similar way, passing the address of the __int64 as the buffer, and sizeof(__int64) as the buffer size.

If you want to write it to a text file, you can do this :

__int64 i64MyInt = 1234;

CString strLine;
strLine.Format("%I64d", i64MyInt);

CStdioFile fileOut("C:\\MyFile.txt", CFile::modeCreate | CFile::modeWrite | CFile::shareDenyWrite);
fileOut.WriteString(strLine + "\n");
fileOut.Close();


Hope this helps
