The site explains the whole problem


Have designed (in Flash) procedures for a student feedback system (based on a FileMaker solution) but don't know PHP yet (though am borrowing Kevin's book tomorrow) - which is needed to update a basic text file that keeps scores and prefs.

How do I get PHP to update this basic text file (tabsvariables.txt):

1 whenever the teacher puts in the occasional change in prefs; and

2 to the next empty variable whenever a student enters their 6 to 150 characters of text.

Your perspective would be much appreciated. The people here are very interested in using it once it works.
