       Console.Write(" Input {0} strings below :\n",n);
		for(i=0;i<n;i++)
		{
		Console.Write(" Input line {0} : ",i+1);
		ArrLines[i] = Console.ReadLine();	
		}	
        System.IO.File.WriteAllLines(fileName, ArrLines);
             Console.Write("\n The content of the last line of the file {0} is  :\n",fileName);
			if (File.Exists(fileName))
				{
				string[] lines = File.ReadAllLines(fileName);
				Console.WriteLine(" {0}",lines[n-1]);
				}
