Writes the database command log to a named file. The database command log contains all commands that were used to create the current database. These commands are recorded in the database as they are issued, and saved in the database file (File.DB) whenever the database is saved. The LGWRITE command extracts these commands from the database and writes them to a file. Nonessential commands (for listing, graphics displays, help, etc.) can be excluded from the file by using the Kedit field. The file resulting from LGWRITE can be used as command input to the program. This command is most useful if the session log file (File.LOG), which is normally saved during an interactive session, has been lost or corrupted.

This command is valid in any processor.
