Does anyone know how to make the contents of a file a variable so they can be added to the end of another file... I tried to use !copy, not realizing that it literally copied the file onto the other. I've tried the php.net manual, but I can't find anything that works. Its probably something really simple but its been bugging me for the last hour, since I got everything else working but this.

fopen() with mode a or a+
PHP5: file_put_contents() with FILE_APPEND flag

Also file_get_contents()

Huh? file_GET_contents()?

Ahh sorry, I should have made it more clear... I was talking about an easy way to get the entire file as a string (to then be written using fopen()/fwrite()).

Can someone explain the usage of file_get_contents since I can't seem to get anything but false whenever I use it.

$filecontents=file(data.txt);
$filecontents=implode('',$filecontents);
