Help with guestbook needed

I have the following guestbook, that works great - except new entries in the book are added to the bottom of the page, and I would like to change the script so that new entries are displayed at the top of the page. Any and all help with this is greatly appreciated!
---Begin Guestbook Code---
use CGI;

$co = new CGI;

open (BOOK, "+<book.htm")
or die "Could not open guest book.";

seek (BOOK, -length($co->end_html), 2);
$date= localtime;

$username = $co->param('username');
$username =~ s/</</g;
$text = $co->param('comments');
$text =~ s/</</g;

print BOOK
("Posted by ", $username, " on ", $date,


close BOOK;

print $co->header,
( -title=>'Guest Book',

( $co->h2('Thanks for adding to the Guest Book!')
"To view the Guest Book, ",
"click here"
---End Guestbook Code---

RE: Help with guestbook needed

you should add a comment above the post, then, when you open the file, search for the comment you made and replace it with a new comment and post.
