Default how to generate a text file using .NET?

I am trying to use .NET to generate a text file, in which today's date will be displayed. Anyone know how to do it?

I know that some older compilers like VB or CC can do it, I don't have them installed on my computer. So I am seeing if .NET can do it.

Thanks!

System.IO.StreamWriter objFile = System.IO.File.CreateText("<path to file>");
objFile.Write(System.DateTime.Now.ToString);
objFile.Close();
