I want to write a score each day someone plays the game. Like "date and score".

When reading the file to make a chart of the year-score, I need te know how many lines are written to the file, becouse someone is not playing it every day.

Question 1:
Can I write a string at the end of a saved file, or will the first written lines be deleted?

Question 2:
I can't use Repeat, ReadString() etc becouse I don't know how many lines are written, is there a way to read this out?

Maybe there is a simple solution, but I can't find it (same problem as readding the GetStringToken() I think).

Use WriteLine() and ReadLine() to write/read each line

While Not FileEOF() will keep reading until the end of the file. Then you don't need to know how may lines there are.

OpenToWrite() has a second parameter that allows you to append to the end of an existing file.

Took a while for me to answer becouse this new forum has nog automatic mailing on reactions?

So thank you very much for your help, EOF stands for 'end of file' I suppose

Not sure if this is any use to you but I wrote it to help me with debugging purposes and its useful for printing to a debuglog.txt file, it also appends the document (which automatically adds the new stuff under the old stuff)

Anyway its possibly not what you wanted to know but might prove handy for anybody in the future
