PHP Parser

Good Morning, i am looking for some sample code which i can adapt to do the following in php...

1) Open a source.csv file and fetch the data from row 1
2) the data from row 1 is to be passed into a variable which i then use as part of an api
3) the result from the api is to be written to destination.csv along with the variable
4) flag the data from row 1 on source.csv as done
5) move to row 2... repeats the process until all rows are processed.

Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction?

Many thanks


RE: PHP Parser

You make an excellent argument for using a database instead of a CSV file.

Without knowing the specifics of the CSV data (is it small enough to do all this processing in active memory?...is this function sporadic enough to not require a lot of processing resources?...are you able to write to the source.csv file to flag rows?) it is difficult to offer any meaningful answers.

Look to a database. This is what databases are for.
