Converts a text file into an INed structured file.
newfile File [ NewName ]
The newfile command converts a text file into a structured file. If you specify only the file name in the File parameter, that will also be the name of the structured file. The original text file is backed up by appending a .bak to its name, making it the File.bak file. The newfile command exits with an error if the text file does not exist or if it cannot create the structured file.
See the readfile command to convert a structured file to a text file.
