What would be the actual code for this however in
PHP4?  I'm new to the language, but know moderate
amounts of PERL, so I'm really struggling with how
I can assign a file's contents into an array and
delete a line, then write the edited version back
to the file.  Also, the line now contains more
data.  To clarify what I need code for:
Get every line from file.txt which is in this format:
Then, match the first field (The one before the ~)
to Username2.  If it does match, have the program
get rid of the entire line.  Then write everything back
to file.txt.
Sorry if I'm unclear, its really hard to explain what
I need done in text.
