Aaron is right. In fact, pointing to -display- was perhaps misdirection on my part. Pradipto wants to write a text file, so -file- is good. From the problem description you could also assemble the output as values of a string variable, so long as each line was <= 244 characters, and then just -outfile- that string variable.
