Description: A guestbook script that requires no database or even anything other than PHP. Uses "guestbook.txt" for entry storage, and formats text when writing it to the file. All you need is "Guestbook.php" and an empty text file with full permissions named "guestbook.txt" in the same directory. Once you have that, you're set. Working example at http://delta.glypto.com/~cjpbob/guestbook.php
