blackberry.io.file..... append to file?

In my Webworks smartphone application, I would like to log information to a file and store either logging info or performance info.  There is the blackberry.io.file available but it isn't obvious to me how to append to a file.


Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Re: blackberry.io.file..... append to file?

There isn't an appendToFile method, which would make this a little more streamlined, but it's certainly possible with what is in the SDK.


If you do a readFile, then call blobToString on your returned blobData, you can append your logging data to that String (with a +), then go back through stringToBlob and saveFile.
