Question PHP Pull File Lines Into Table


I have this php page that reads a file and echos out the data. I want to be able to read each line, and then perform an action upon it. What would be the best way to do that?


PHP Code:
<?php
$filename 
"MythMusic.alw";
$handle fopen($filename"r");
if ( 
$handle )
{
$contents fread($handlefilesize($filename));
fclose($handle);
echo 
"<P2>$contents</P2>";
}
else
{
die (
"<H1>No Request Songs In Queue</H1>");
}
?>

Use the file() function, this reads the contents into an array one element per line. Then you can do your processing on each line.
PHP Code:
$lines file($filename);

I have done it that way but it wouldn't work...

$skkfile is a textfile with lines terminated with 0x0d

$lines = explode(F, file($skkfile));
echo "0 : ".$lines[0]."<br>\n";
echo "1 : ".$lines[1]."<br>\n";
echo "2 : ".$lines[2]."<br>\n";

If I try to print the array it result:
0 : Array
1 :
2 :

Someone who can give me an hint....

Try the runtime option auto_detect_line_endings
PHP Code:
ini_set('auto_detect_line_endings''1');
$lines file($skkfile);
echo 
"0 : ".$lines[0]."<br>\n";
echo 
"1 : ".$lines[1]."<br>\n";
echo 
"2 : ".$lines[2]."<br>\n";
...

I also tried to use explode to separate data inside the lines:
$table = explode('\t', $lines[$i]);

the lines in the file are data separated with a tab char (ascii 09) but I got whole line as $table[0]...
