how to read a csv file in php 5

php provides fgetcsv(resource handle[,int length[,string delimiter[,string enclosure[,string escape]]]]) functions. the length is the number of character that will be read in one line, delimiter will be the end character in a line, enclosure will wrap a field, escape string will esacape double quotes.

it will return an array containing datas of the csv file.
following a source code to parse a csv file.

$row = 1;
$handle = fopen($filename, "r");
echo "table cellpadding='3' cellspacing='3'";
while (($data = fgetcsv($handle)) !== FALSE) {
$num = count($data);
echo "tr";
for ($c=0; $c < $num; $c++) {
echo "td".$data[$c]."/td";
echo "/tr";
echo "/table";
