Function dmd.common.outbuffer.OutBuffer.moveToFile

Destructively saves the contents of this to filename. As an optimization, if the file already has identical contents with the buffer, no copying is done. This is because on SSD drives reading is often much faster than writing and because there's a high likelihood an identical file is written during the build process.

bool moveToFile (
  const(char*) filename


filename the name of the file to receive the contents


true iff the operation succeeded.
