Being fairly new to C# I have a program that I have written as a console application that compares the files in a couple of folders named BASE folder and INPUT folder.

The output is displayed in the Console on the screen via the Console.WriteLine command.

What I want to be able to do is to output the results of the search to a text file so that I can print the results

Any tips for doing this would be really appreciated

You may use the StreamWriter class, see the sample code in the documentation page [^].

You may also leave the application as it stands and redirect the output on calling the executable.
For instance, suppose your application's name is mycomp.exe, then issuing
mycomp.exe > result.txt

will redirect the output of your program to the result.txt text file.
