should be able to make acouple of small edits to it to get rid of that blank line. Is that blank line a big deal or can you live with it, I for one would like it, then it leaves breaks inbetween writes.
ok take another look at the code again I added a pop line to get that line off the file, the program was leaving the first element of the array in the file so I pop it off in to nothing, probably not the best thing to do but I'm not sure what else would work. after all by just setting $#log to 0 aren't I just loosing the whole file in memory somewhere. I'm not sure
