Hi All,
 
I've been lurking on this list for a while, and I have a basic question
that I'm hoping someone can help answer.
 
I have read the FAQ regarding file I/O, and I am still having problems.
Basically, I'm opening a file like this:
 
myfile = File.open("/home/n6tadam/the_file", "r+")
arr[]

arr = myfile.readlines()
#change contents of arr
 
myfile.rewind()
myfile.print arr
myfile.close()
 
but still the file has not updated. Any ideas why? Also, when you want to
do in-place editing of the file, do you have to read the file into an
array first?
 
Hope that's not too confusing,
 
-- Thomas Adam
