Here is my code !!

C#
FileStream fs = new FileStream(@"C:\movies\call.txt",FileMode.Truncate,FileAccess.Write);
StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(fs);
Console.WriteLine("Enter the string :");
sw.Write(Console.Read());

:- When i type "1234" in the console, it gives me the output in the "call.txt" file in the integer format because i use Read() method here but i do not know what the read() method is returning, in this case "49".

thanks !!!!

Check this may be helped to you.http://www.dotnetperls.com/console-readline

If you aren't sure what a method does, the first thing to do is turn to Google: "Console.read"[^]
This normally finds the MSDN at the top of the list: MSDN: "Console.Read Method"[^] which generally explains it pretty well.

In this case, Console.Read returns a single character the user typed: '1' in an integer - which has the value 49 in decimal. Your write method (when handed an integer) writes that integer as a string to the file: "49".
Perhaps you want to consider using Console.ReadLine instead? That would return "1234" as a string instead.
