The fgets length is like this:  It's the number of bytes read from a
file OR up to a new line character.  Which ever comes first.  It's as
simple as that.  

Try this:

<?

$file = "filename.txt"; // Name of file

$fp = fopen($file, "r");

if(!$fp){
 echo "Couldn't open file for reading.";
}
else{
 $i = 1; // used for name of inputs
 while($buffer = fgets($fp, 18976) ){ //18796 is what I use.  Use a
larger number if your lines are larger.
  print "<input type='text' name='line[$i]' value='" . $buffer .
"'><br>";
  $i++;
 }
}

fclose($fp);

?>

That's what gets displayed to this user and this is how we would rewrite
the file:

<?

$file = "filename.txt";

$fp = fopen($file, "w");

if(!$fp){
 print "Couldn't open the file for writing";
}
else{
 for($x = 1; $x <= count($line); $x++){
  fputs($fp, $line[$x], strlen($line[$x]);
 }
}

fclose($fp);

?>

I hope this helps.
