I'm just trying to gauge how often this is used in real world development, it would seem that most would use databases for storing information instead of putting them in text files right?
I'm in my first PHP MySql college course. Last week we just finished a chapter on reading and writing to text files(.txt), making, copying, and deleting directories.
I'm just wondering how often in web development are you guys actually storing information in text files and then printing them back online?
Is this common? Or do you mostly use databases for storing information?(We havent covered databases yet, not for another week or two I think).
