Writes a string value to the user's profile.
Profile values are identified by their section (sections begin with [section name]) and by the entry (or key) name.
Section groupings allow values to be organized in logical groups. They also allow values with the same name to be differentiated between different groups.
-file allows the values to be written to a file of the user's choice.
The file does not have to have an "ini" extension.
Note that some users use the profile (or other file) as a "global variable" mechanism. While this is still supported, it is not recommended and has been superseded by actual global variables which allow you to have variables that persist between script executions. For more information, see setGlobalVar (and related commands).

// Write to Section 2
writeProfileString "Section2" "Value1" "Scripting";
writeProfileString "Section2" "Value2" "is cool";
/* Will produce output like this
// Now retrieve it
$value = `getProfileString "Section1" "Value1" ""`;
