I have a program that allows a new user to register. I have a text file holding certain information for each user. Once a new user registers is there a way that I can create a new text file right then possibly naming it $username.txt? I can find information about opening, reading, and writing to files online but I'm unsure if it's possible to create one 'on the fly' so to say. Thanks (I'm a beginner with perl/cgi scripts).
