Continuing on with my text file..its actually an XML file. I can't
use my XML parsing script because I have the header information in my
XML file.. I need to strip that first. Here is what I get back:


**** need to delete between the asterisks
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Cache-Control: no-cache
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Response type="Product" txnid="pm01"
<ProductName>Kiddush Cup #1052</ProductName>

I see that I can use fseek() to place my pointer, but how can I find
out the place to put it correctly ..i.e., I need to find out in my
XML file where <?xml is so I can place the pointer right before the
opening <. Then I imainge once I place the pointer there I should be
able to remove that data..maybe using ftruncate()?
