    Problem with writing to file.

    The following code appends to file successfully and works perfectly.

    Code:
    $handle = fopen("recent.txt", 'a');
    fwrite($handle, $add);
    fclose($handle);
    However ... this code doesn't seem to write to the file. The only different is that I want this code to set the pointer at the beginning of the file instead of the end. Anybody have any clues to what is going on?

    Code:
    $handle = fopen("recent.txt", 'r+');
    fwrite($handle, $add);
    fclose($handle);

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.

    Apparently I had to read out the contents and then append to the stream. Got it to work now.
