i have a script that writes the content from a textarea to a .txt file, but i want it to clear the txt file before posting new info into it......
$File = "top30message.txt";
$Open = fopen($File, "a");
$message = $_GET['message'];

It will rewrite the file automatically.

$Open = fopen($File, "w");

Yeah use w mode. It will automatically rewrite the file with the contents of the textarea.

to do this you would need to read the text file. There are many ways to do this, and this is how i usually do it:
$fh = fopen("filename.txt", "r");
echo fgets($fh, 4096);
