Often I have the contents to be written in a file at a given path that I know as well. I recently tried to find a function in stdlib to do that and to my surprise this is what I found :
- Such function exists - It's `distutils.file_util.write_file`
IMO the last place where people'd look for such a function is inside `distutils` package. Besides I reviewed modules listed under `File and directory access` category in `Library Reference` and found nothing even similar.
Q: - Is it a good idea to provide a similar function in e.g. shutils module ?
Probably there's already a better way to do this and my comment is just irrelevant . Anyway is just a suggestion ;o)
