Description:
------------
I am trying to insert a line in a file after a line that is searched for.
The line to insert is inserted fine, but the text after it gets truncated partially.

********* test.txt ************
PHP is a great language.
It is a tool for the ages.
It is easy to use and fast too!

Test script:
---------------
$absoluteFilePath = '<your_root_path>/test.txt';
$splFile = new \SplFileObject($absoluteFilePath, 'c+');
$splFile->flock(LOCK_EX);
$splFile->rewind();
		
// Add to next line.
while ($splFile->valid()) {
	$currentLine = $splFile->fgets();
	if (strpos($currentLine, "It is a tool for the ages.") !== false) {
		$splFile->fwrite("But it has a few bugs.\n");
	}
}
$splFile->flock(LOCK_UN);

Expected result:
----------------
PHP is a great language.
It is a tool for the ages.
But it has a few bugs.
It is easy to use and fast too!


Actual result:
--------------
PHP is a great language.
It is a tool for the ages.
But it has a few bugs.
ast too!

File writes do not insert. That is not how files work.

If you want to insert then you have to read in everything that comes at and after your "insertion" point, write what you want to add, and then write out the rest of what was there.
