Form results mailed to me in an attachment

I have a form which customers can fill in whenever they have got products
which they want to be anodised. Everything works fine and in addition to the
email I get out of my formmail.php, I would also like to get an attachment
with that email which also contains the results. I want to use that file for
further processing the customers orders in my database. So the file should
be delimited by tabs of comma's.

Does anyone know if there is an function which can be added in the
formmail.php so this will be possible?
I'm using formmail.php form Andrew Riley (with Don's update)

Yes, an attachment can be added to the email using headers. Just search
over at http://php.net and http://google.com
There are already dozens of tutorials/scripts for doing this.

Let's try a search on headers then. But maybe someone have a suggestion
on a specific script?

I've tried searching for scripts and I think that I will have to take it one
step at a time. First I need to know how to get my form results in a text
file.
For that I found the following:

<?php
$file = @fopen("/order.txt", 'a+');
if ($file == false) {
// could not open the file, so handle the error
}
else {
$buffer = "what you have to write\n";
$written = fwrite($file, $buffer);
fclose($file);

// check everything is ok
if ($written != strlen($buffer)) {
// oops, there was a problem
}
}

?>

But this doesn't write anything to my file called "order.txt". Although I
set
the permissions on that file to 777. Does someone no what's wrong?
