Flushes buffered text file data to the file System unit
 procedure Flush ( var FileHandle : TextFile ) ;
The Flush procedure flushes unwritten text file data to disk.
The same effect can be achieved by closing the file. In fact, this is more likely to be effective, since Flush simply passes the flush request to the Operating System, which may in turn be doing its own buffering, and possibly caching.
