You can just change the numbers in the file if you want, since it is text. If you parse it with a spreadsheet program, and then plot the curves this may give you better visualization of your changes, or (depending on the spreadsheet) allow you to move the curves directly. You just need to set the spreadsheet parsing parameters appropriately - space or tab as a separator, and you may also need to play with the text delimiter to make the saved out file work (ie. on open office you need to set it to no text delimiter, so that it doesn't add extra double quotes). If it were me though, I'd be trying to figure out how to avoid doing this, by making sure that the room was dark, and that the instrument can't "see" and light from any on screen controls.
