Creating/editing textfile through VB.NET

How do I code the algorithm below in VB.NET?

Procedure logfile()
{
if "C:\textfile.txt"=exist then
open the textfile;
else
create the textfile;
end if
go to the end of the textfile;
write new line in the textfile;
save;
close;
}

Answer
Dim FILE_NAME As String = "C:\textfile.txt"
Dim i As Integer
Dim aryText(4) As String

aryText(0) = "Mary WriteLine"
aryText(1) = "Had"
aryText(2) = "Another"
aryText(3) = "Little"
aryText(4) = "One"

Dim objWriter As New System.IO.StreamWriter(FILE_NAME, True)

For i = 0 To 4
    objWriter.WriteLine(aryText(i))
Next

objWriter.Close()
MsgBox("Text Appended to the File")

If you set the second parameter to True in the System.IO.StreamWriter's constructor it will append to a file if it already exists, or create a new one if it doesn't.
