I actually meant to support arrays, I must have forgotten to make the code,
however it will support arrays. 

I'm not sure if I understood your question about how it stores the new
messages but. 

How it stores files:

When the app returns from when the user has submitted the form, the file is
parsed again, if the function detects a _REQUEST field with the same name as
a key in the file, the value for the key is changed to the value of
_REQUEST[$key]. Then it adds a line to a variable that holds the entire

When the file has been parsed a the file is saved. The form then uses an
internal array containing the new messages. So the user actually just sees
his own _REQUEST feedback, while the file is written. 

I made it this way so I could have the same code for saving as I have for
file parsing. Less code to maintain. I guess I could optimize the code a bit
by adding a handler for the form-submit. But this way I also protect against
people adding new keys to the file.

Anyone who wants to take a look at the code please see
