You can write to a file on a remote server, but it depends on your
network and system configuration how you should do it. Some options
(your program doesn't know about the network)
(your program needs to know about the network)
http (needs a CGI script on the server to accept the POST and
actually write the file)
custom client-server setup
distributed objects (ie CORBA, XML-RPC, DCOM, etc ; this is a form
of a custom setup)
If your life is a hard drive,
Christ can be your backup.
