String words = "apple bear cat dog";
String[] list = split(words, ' ');

// now write the strings to a file, each on a separate line
saveStrings("nouns.txt", list);
Description Writes an array of strings to a file, one line per string. This file is saved to the sketch's folder, which is opened by selecting "Show sketch folder" from the "Sketch" menu.

It is not possible to use saveXxxxx() methods inside a web browser unless the sketch is signed. To save a file back to a server, see the save to web example.

Starting with Processing release 0134, all files loaded and saved by the Processing API use UTF-8 encoding. In previous releases, the default encoding for your platform was used, which causes problems when files are moved to other platforms.
