Tx, man.

You helped a lot here, but now I'm having some problems updating the
text file.

I've made some changes in the code myself, so here it is:

The reading process is made by this:

<?php
clearstatcache ();
$file = "/usr/local/.../news.txt";
$abrir = fopen ($file, "r");
$i = 1;
 while($buffer = fgets($abrir, 18976) )
 {
  print "<input type='text' name='line[$i]' size='60' value='" .
$buffer ."'><br>";
  $i++;
 }
fclose($abrir);
?>

This is working great, thanks to you, but the writing script is
working with the second line only.... I think I'm really making a mess
here, so here it is:

<?php
$file = "/usr/local/.../news.txt";

while(list($var, $value) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS))
{
    for($x=1;$x<3;$x++)
/* I know I did a bad thing defining the limit (3) here, but I really
need this to work on URGENT basis so...*/
{
    echo "Updated: $value[$x]<br>";

$abrir = fopen($file, "w");
    fputs($abrir,$value[$x]."\n",strlen($value[$x]));
}
fclose($abrir);
    }
?>

The "echo" thing works great, but the writing process is messed up...
It only writes the second (last) line of text...

I know I'm being stupid somewhere, but I'm still having some trouble
understanding PHP syntax, so if you or anybody else can help me
again...
