in reply to Both read and write

You can't read text you've just written because the current position of the filehandle will be after the end of the text you've just written, so if you want to read it you have to seek back to the place you want to read from. At least, that's what I found in a quick test - I don't have much experience with this.

    Laziness, time to try it out, and low confidence (not in that particular order) caused me to post this then. I was thinking I might need to use seek or navigate back to the start of the file (possibly). Thanks for the info, now I'll definitely give it a try when I get back to it.
