Writing to a new line in a text file?

SnookerLoopySnookerLoopy Posts: 41Member
Ello there, I was wondering if anyone can help me with this simple problem...

------------------------------------------------------------------


<?
$string = $_GET['entry'];
?>



<?

$filename = 'test.txt';
$fp = fopen($filename, "a+");
$write = fputs($fp, $string);
fclose($fp);

?>


------------------------------------------------------------------

It works okay, it basically adds whatever gets entered to the PHP script by the URL into the text file "test.txt", but it's all on the same line. I've tried using '
' and all that, but I can't get it to do what I want.

All I want to do is add each new entry to a new line in the text file.

Help!

Cheers :)

    Hi,

    You should try to use



    is the carrier return command that brings back the cursos to the beginning of the line, and
    will move the cursor down 1 pos to a new line that is created.

    $write = fputs($fp, $string . "
    ");


    That should be sufficient for what you are attempting to do..
