I need to fetch content from a file that is located at a URL say "http://example.com/sample.html?user=."
This file will contain data in the following format:-
Item =Name|Unit=1 QTY|Market=INDORE|Price=5000|UpdatedDateTime=Jun 27 2012 8:149PM
After this line a <br> tag is used.
How do I store the content into database. What I actually wish to do is insert or update this content (such as Name, Indore, 5000, Jun 27 2012 8:14 PM) to their respective fields' name.
I am stuck up here. Any help would be appreciated.
I thought of using php's f-read mechanism but am not aware of how to pause after various symbols such as =, |, <br> .
Please help me !
