PHP is not as bad as other people would think. Sometimes it is easier to do things in PHP than in, say, Java. Consider reading a text file line by line and parsing each pipe-delimited line.
- Windows 7 Professional SP1
- PHP 5.5.9 / Zend Engine v2.5.0
That’s less than 10 lines. Way less codes than in Java.
$file = fopen('data.txt', 'r');
while(($line = fgets($file)) != false)
$fields = explode("|", $line);
foreach($fields as $value)
echo $value . "\n";
