Many a times while building ecommerce, directory or other database oriented web applications, it is required to upload the data in a csv file to the database rather than having to manually enter every single record. In such cases, you need to be able to parse the data from the CSV file.
For this, you can either use the PHP class that can parse and display data from a CSV file. (Click here for the Link)
Or you could just use the PHP function fgetcsv (Click here for the Link)
Basically, it opens and parses the lines of a provided CSV file. The data is then stored in an array class variable.
