con is a character string, the function calls
file to obtain a file connection which is opened for
the duration of the function call.
If the connection is open it is written from its current position.
If it is not open, it is opened for the duration of the call in
"wt" mode and then closed again.
writeLines is used with a text-mode connection, and the
default separator is converted to the normal separator for that
platform (LF on Unix/Linux, CRLF on Windows). For more control, open
a binary connection and specify the precise value you want written to
the file in
sep. For even more control, use
writeChar on a binary connection.
useBytes is for expert use. Normally (when false) character
strings with marked encodings are converted to the current encoding
before being passed to the connection (which might do further
useBytes = TRUE suppresses the re-encoding of
marked strings so they are passed byte-by-byte to the connection:
this can be useful when strings have already been re-encoded by
iconv. (It is invoked automatically for strings
with marked encoding
