Option b. delete all AFTER "foo", I.E. truncate the file directly after
"foo". Leaving "foo" and all the data before "foo" untouched.

Do you mean:

a) how do i make sure a word (eg "foo") is in a file, and if it is, delete
all contents of the file except the word "foo" OR

b) how do i search a file for the word "foo", and delete everything in the
file AFTER the word "foo"
