This command displays
a dialog to the user asking them to specify a file to create.
If the user selects a file to create, then that file is opened
and the file identifier is returned in fileId. If the
user cancels the operation then fileId is set to -1. If
for any other reason the command could not create or open the
file then it causes an error.
type is a 4 character string containing
the type of the file you wish to create.
dataFormat is a string containing the data
format of the file you wish to create. TNT Basic currently supports
two types of files...
Data File - "Data"
Data is stored in TNT Basic's own format. These file use less
space and a quicker to access, however, they cannot be easily
made by hand.
Text File - "Text"
Data is stored as a series of lines in a text file. This takes
up more space and is slightly slower to access but the advantage
is that they are easy to create by hand.
If this field is left
blank then it defaults to a data file.
