So, I am planning a little project. I am setting up a little fencing tournament with a group I play around with. I am trying to set up a program to keep track of scoring. The program it self is rather simple, just editing a text file.
The problem I have is; Multiple people will be using this program at the same time. Now if one thing programming has taught me, is that you cant access the same file in a program while its open. There has to be a way to do this right?
So what should I look into. How can I have multiple computers (most likely small windows tablet pcs) access one file, edit values, so that all the other PC’s can see the updated information.
