Hello again. I am writing a bulletin board script at the moment (Perl BB sound good :p )? While writing some code to update a text file I encountered this situation. I need to open the file, append data to the end, then set the write offset to a particular point in the file and write new data over old data. The required offset will already have been found somwhere else in the program during a read-only open of the same file.
The appropriate way to open the file here therefore seems to be:
I thought I could then use "seek" to change the offset and "print" to write the new data in. But, will the offset jump back to the EOF when I use "print" because of the ">>" mode? If so will I need to use "syswrite" to solve the problem? Any answers appriciated.
