I have done my best in trying to find a way to be able to do the following in Perl.

I have a text file (data.txt) that I would like to add some info at the beginning of the file (prepend I believe, not append).

From what I have gathered, "append" adds to the "end" of a file. I need to add to the "beginning" of a file after a form submission.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Here is what I have so far:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use CGI ':standard';

open WRITE, "<data.txt";

# 'name' is what is taken from my submission form
$name = param('name'); 

open(WRITE, ">>./data.txt");

print WRITE "$name\n";

close WRITE;

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
print "Success!";
