PRINTING DOTS(.) TO A FILE

I WANT TO PRINT STRINGS CONTAINING DOTS TO A FILE WITHOUT THE QUOTATION
MARKS, BUT USING "READ" TO STRIP THE MARKS TRUNCATES THE STRING AT THE DOT
ITSELF. I HAVE TRIED USING "WRITE-CHAR" AND "WRITE-LINE" BUT I ALWAYS GET
UNWANTED BLANK LINES IN THE FILE EITHER BEFORE OR AFTER THE STRING. AN
EXAMPLE OF THE STRING IS "W37.5". HOW CAN I COMBINE ALPHA AND NUMERIC DATA
IN A STRING AND PRINT TO A FILE WITHOUT THE QUOTATION MARKS?

HiHo; This is from Cadalyst June 1997 tip 1336 Rename to wro.lsp ..................................................................... ;TIP1336.LSP: WRO.LSP Write Text to File (c)1997, David H. Wilde

Change lspdir to a directory of your choice and txtfile to a file of your choice. I hope I understood your request correctly. I also interperted it as a request to locate the dot in a text string, if that is the case let me know as I have a program that will do that.
