save

This command saves the contents of the pipeline to a file. Use this in combination with the to-json, to-csv, … commands to save the contents in the specified format.

Syntax: save (path) {flags}

Parameters:

Flags

--raw
  treat values as-is rather than auto-converting based on file extension

Example

You can save the name of files in a directory like this:

> ls | where type == File | pick name | save filenames.csv

Or you can format it in supported formats using one of the to-* commands:

> ls | where type == File | pick name | to-csv | save filenames

filename.csv and filenames are both csv formatted files. Nu auto-converts the format if a supported file extension is given.
