A simple message board?

P: n/a
I'm looking for a simple, filesystem-based message board.
(No MySQL!) Something that I could include easily in my code:

include '../inc/messageboard.php';
.... so that the board shows up at the bottom of every PHP
page. The board should have just the basic features, like:

- posting capability
- last 10 messages shown
- links on the bottom for messages 11-20, 21-30 etc.
Thanks.

I noticed that Message-ID:
<11**********************@g49g2000cwa.googlegroups .com> from
de********@yahoo.com contained the following:

If you want something that exactly meets your requirements the best
thing to do is to learn how to code it.

Here is a very simple guestbook that you may be able to base it on.

You can give it a try, but I donít know of a ísimpleí message board.
IMHO as soon as you develop it, you need 10 more features, and then
after spending a couple of months, you would trash it for a real
db-based message board.

May I make a recommendation: look at phpbb, look at all the features,
and make sure you would not need all those features in the future. A
simple exercise but may save you days/months of work.
