Can PHP do this:

1. Let a user upload a file
2. read the file based on offsets defined from a script
3. Create a GUI to modify the file's values
4. Write the values back to the file
5. Send the file back to the user.

I want to make an online editor for specific formats (I have saved games in mind). Can this be done? I'm tired of looking for compilers to make windows apps.

when you say a GUI , do you mean a standalone application or a browser/web based application ? , either way php can do it although they are 2 entirely different things and require different approaches.

And what does section 2 of the Coding Forums penal code say? Oh you didn't read it before posting? Aha!! Could be on to something here. Well I will just quote the pertinent section then:



2) Type in a subject that summarizes your question- A great way to turn off other members wanting to help you is to type an incomplete or silly subject for your post. Examples of poor subject titles include:

- "Help!"
- "I'm a newbie...be gentle"
- "How can I..."
- "Urgent...deadline tomorrow!"

The above subjects either have absolutely nothing to do with the question itself, or are grossly incomplete (ie: "How can I..."). When asking for help, enter a subject that summarizes your question, period! Don't use silly, incomplete, or "bait" subjects. Some examples of good titles are:

- "How do I round a number to 2 decimal places using JavaScript?"
- "What's the difference between require() and include() in PHP?"
- "Can someone suggest a good, free HTML editor?"

Oh, sorry a about that. I'm not new to the forum, I'm just new to this area. I always make a horrible first impression when I don't mean to. Once I know what I'm doing I'll be fine.
