Hi!

I try to write code which adding extra lines to my file

ruby -e 'readlines.each{… } ’ myfile_name~ > myfile_name

Yeah, as 7stud says, open the file with the append flag…

You should look through the docs of the File class, and possibly
Google? They’re suprisingly useful…

Replace the > with a >> and the output of your script will be appended
to
myfile_name instead of replacing it.

HTH,
