    High Scores

    I am really in a bind here trying to implement high scores into a console app. I just don't understand file reading and writing. The books I have don't cover it very well. Here's some psuedo code, maybe someone could help me out or send me a sample.
    (I _do_ know how to open the file)
    [code]

    File.open("data.txt", ios:ut | ios::in);

    get # of lines
    go to the lowest line

    if (score > lowest score){

    while (money > current line's score){

    current line's score = next line up;
    }

    move everything below current line down one line;
    insert score and name in empty line;

    if (# of lines == 10){

    delete last line;
    }

    }

    Thanks guys!

    First make an attempt to implement the solution. Post a specific question afterward if applicable.
