<?php
        if(isset($_GET['pname']))
        {
            $pname = trim($_GET['pname']);  

            $string = file_get_contents('../data/cart.txt');
            $exploded = explode("\n", $string);

            foreach ($exploded as $key => $val)
            {
                if (stristr($val,$pname))
                {
                    $returned[$key] = $val;
                }


                $string_with_removed = implode("\n", $returned);
                file_put_contents('../data/cart.txt', $string_with_removed);
            }


            header('refresh:2;url=../cart.php');

if you say its not working, what does it mean.
yOu get error, or you get some different output or what happening, tell exactly.
