Most efficient way to write data out to a text file?

I assume some sort of block i/o or preallocating a large block of file space
would be the best way to do it?  I am outputting about 700,000 records to a text
file and my program only spits out about 20 records per second.  This is using
standard file open and write...

This is on a W2K machine... perhaps I should use the win32file interface?  Any

Thank you!
