I want to iterate through html table and display the values. for instance, column keys are fname,lname,mkt,positions. if for instance there are 10 rows,how can i access them and send them to php script ?

Do you want retrive them from a database and display them on a table?

No. items are created on the table. then u read and send them to a php file on the server. in other words, given a large, table (with data), how will you read the data as array and post it to php from html front end ?

you have to deal with php or with javascript or with php when parsing your data, in either way you have to use preg_match() to get the desired syntaxes.
