// you need to name the submit button submit.
// define the $my_path to where your file is
// change $my_field as appropriate.

if ($submit){
	// what kind of checking can we do?
	// let's make sure it's not empty at least.
	if ($my_field == ""){
		$err_array[my_field] = "<b>Error</b> field is blank.";

	if (count($err_array)!=0){

		print ("<p class=err>Please correct the error(s):<br>");
		while (list($index,$value) = each($err_array)){
			print ("$value<br>");
		print ("</p>\n");
		// add it damn you!

		// add line break too.
		$my_field .= "\n";

		$mp = fopen("$my_path", "a+");
		$did_it_work = (fwrite($mp, $my_field));
		if ($did_it_work) {
			print ("<p>The file has been updated.</p>");
			print ("<p><b>Error.</b> ".__LINE__."</p>");
