based on an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.
 Save Save[" filename ", symbol ] appends definitions associated with the specified symbol to a file. Save[" filename ", " form "] appends definitions associated with all symbols whose names match the string pattern form. Save[" filename ", " context `"] appends definitions associated with all symbols in the specified context. Save[" filename ", , , ... ] appends definitions associated with several objects. Save uses FullDefinition to include subsidiary definitions. Save writes out definitions in InputForm. Save uses Names to find symbols whose names match a given string pattern. You can use Save[" filename ", " s "] to write out the definition for the value of a symbol s itself. See the Mathematica book: Section 1.11.1, Section 2.11.1. See also: PutAppend, Get, DumpSave. Further Examples Here is a definition for a function f and an assignment for the parameter c. We then save the definition of f in the file tempf and clear the two definitions. In[1]:= Out[1]= In[2]:= Out[2]= In[3]:= The file contains both the definition of f and the definition of c on which f depends. You can reinstate the definitions you saved by reading back the file tempf with Get (short form <<). In[4]:= f[x_] = c + x^3c = 17
