Open a temporary file, write your new data to it, copy the old file on to 
the end of it, remove the old file, rename the temporary file with the old 
file's name.

Obviously this is not very efficient. Explore whether you really need to
prepend. Perhaps you can append and then read the file backwards a la tac?  
Or perhaps a database is more useful. Or multiple files.
