If you have an array, want to write it to a file, and you don't want to open the file with a file handle, you can use the file_put_contents(). It opens the specified file, writes all values from the specified string, closes the file, and returns the number of bytes written. Here is a PHP script example on how to use file_put_contents():

<?php
$array["one"] = "Download PHP scripts at dev.fyicenter.com.\r\n";
$array["two"] = "Download Perl scripts at dev.fyicenter.com.\r\n";
$bytes = file_put_contents("/temp/todo.txt", $array);
print("Number of bytes written: $bytes\n");
?>

This script will print:

Number of bytes written: 89

If you look at the file todo.txt, it will contain:
