Normally this is used by giving the name of the file (without a path) that the
data will be saved to. If for instance you use
foo as the name:
Then the file will be saved to:
You may also provide an absolute path for the file to be saved to:
Files will be saved in JSON format. However, JSON does not support
If you are saving a register entry that contains a ``set(), then it will fail
to save to JSON format. However, you may pass data through a filter which makes
it JSON compliant:
foo: file.save: filter: True
Be warned that if you do this, then the file will be saved, but not in a format that can be re-imported into Python.
Save the register to <salt cachedir>/thorium/saves/<name>, or to an absolute path.
If an absolute path is specified, then the directory will be created non-recursively if it doesn't exist.
foo: file.save /tmp/foo: file.save
