If my file name is file1 and I want to modify the file as a stated above
Generally, you are not going to modify a file. Your mindset should be: "How do I read a file and then write the output to a new file. If you need the new file to have the same name as the original file, then after you are done writing to the new file, delete the original file and rename the new file to the original file's name.
