data extraction from dat flat file





kk_loke86
Hello, does it possible for me to use PHP file handling coding to extract data from a 2GB dat file? I want to store the extraction into a database (using mySQL), does it possible? I mean upload it to frihost server later? I afraid it will be too large.....

It is not possible to upload 2GB on 250MB, isn't it?

What is in the file? Depending on what it is, you might be able to convert it to a usable database format with the relevant data compressed to get onto frihost.

Give more details, Is it a file containing text records? CSV file? what kind of data is in the DAT file?

I didn`t notice that frihost only can provide 250mb disk space only... The dat file contains purely text only and is about 2GB... It seems like I can`t upload it to frihost... Nevermind... I will try to think out an alternative... Anyway, thanks to you all for kindly reply.

If it only has text, that is extremely compressible and you might be able to get that sized down for storage here.
