Writing float to a file?

|Is it possible to write a Float to a file? If so, how?
Here is what I have:
for (var Int i) 0 63
outFile raw_write addressof:(by8R:i) sizeWrote
outFile raw_write addressof:(by8G:i) sizeWrote
outFile raw_write addressof:(by8B:i) sizeWrote
basically by8R, by8G, and by8B are arrays that contain 64 floats.
sizeWrote is an integer...i'm guessing that it should return how many bytes
are written to the file...curious enough this always comes back as 0.
What am I doing wrong? or if it is simply you can not write floats to a file
how could I accomplish this?
thank you for any help.

|Please publish a more complete example. In yours, the definition of sizeWrote
is not provide.
Also please specify if you want the floatting point number in ASCII or

|That was actually my problem, i thought that perhaps sizeWrote would be
returned the amount of bytes written.
I should have just placed 8 instead of sizeWrote.
