[UPHPU] Wish List

A wish list sounds pretty simple, a database seems like overkill. Try this:

$wish_list = array();
$name = $_REQUEST['name'];

$handle = fopen("wish_list_$name.txt", "w");
for($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++) {
  $wish = $_REQUEST["Wish$i"];
  fputs($handle, "$wish\n");

$handle = fopen("wish_list_$name.txt", "r");
while (!feof($handle)) {
  $buf = fgets($handle, 1024);
  array_push($wish_list, rtrim($buf));
<TR><TD BGCOLOR="#BBBBBB">Name: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="name" VALUE="<?= 
$name ?>" SIZE="20"/\
for($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++) {
  $value = $wish_list[$i];
?><TR><TD ALIGN="right">Wish <?= $i+1 ?>: <INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="Wish<?= 
$i ?>" SIZE="30" VA\
LUE="<?= $value ?>"/></TD></TR><?php
?></TABLE><INPUT TYPE="submit"/></FORM>

As you can see I've got nothing better to do with my time...
