Flatfile reading?

Flatfile reading?

Flatfile reading?

I need to know how open a flatfile for reading and submitting in a html form.

heres how the flat file looks.

I need to be able to open that file while grabbing only 10 results at a time.

Any ideas?

RE: Flatfile reading?

I use a small technique collect all the values from the flat file in a array.display the first 10 values.

$r is the starting point.
$results=10(10 sets of result)

ie) for($i=$r;$i<$x;$i++)
         print $filearray[$i];
to get the next set of results pass the starting point in $r

Thus u can display 10 set of results from a flat file.

I hope u got the logic....

RE: Flatfile reading?


Ok ive been able to get the code working. Although i have run in to a problem. If any one can take a look and maybe let me know what im doing wrong that`d be great. Problem is that i have the results printing to the page in lots of 5... but each result is the same. Last line in the data file.

Any ways heres the url
and the code below.

Thanks guys,
@results = ($invoiceno,$contactname,$contactemail,$company,$address,$state,$city,$zipcode,$country,$title,$description,$category,$emailcategory,$password,$url,$recipurl,$signupurl,$date);
   $number_of_sites = @results;
   $result_count = $number_of_sites;
   $pgsz = 5;

    if ($result_count != 0) {
    $pagecount = int($result_count / $pgsz);
    if (($pagecount * $pgsz) != $result_count) {

    if (!$A::rqpg) {
    $rqpg = 1;
    else {
    $rqpg = $A::rqpg;

    $firstresult = (($rqpg - 1) * $pgsz) + 1;
    $lastresult = $firstresult + $pgsz - 1;
    if ($lastresult > $result_count) {
    $lastresult = $result_count;
    $prev_page = $rqpg - 1;
    $next_page = $rqpg + 1;
    if ($rqpg == 1) {
    $prev_link =
