/* ------ Code -------------------------------- */
function splice($filename){
 if(file_exists($filename)){
global $value; $value=array("0"); // clear the array.
$rows=file($filename); // break text file into a rows array
for($num=0;$num < count($rows); ++$num){
 $column=split(";",$rows[$num]);
 $value[$num]=$column;}}}
/* ------ Notes --------------------------------
 Useage: 
 1) create a ; delimited text file.. ie:
r1c1;r1c2;r1c3;r1c4;r1c5
r2c1;r2c2;r2c3;r2c4;r2c5
r3c1;r3c2;r3c3;r3c4;r3c5
r4c1;r4c2;r4c3;r4c4;r4c5
r5c1;r5c2;r5c3;r5c4;r5c5
r6c1;r6c2;r6c3;r6c4;r6c5
 2) save it what you like.. 
 
example.txt
 3) run the splice function.. 
splice("example.txt")
 4) access the values of the array..
echo $value[3][4];
will print: r3c4
Would be good for a flat file text database type of system.
