While I am an fairly experienced programmer (Java, C/C++), I warning everyone now that I'm a COMPLETE PHP newbie.
Anyway, my college radio station asked me to make their catalog of music searchable on their website. As far as I know, the server is not capable of handling SQL stuff (hey, affordable hosting, what do you expect?). So, I've had them put everything in a text file in this format:
artist, name of song
michael jackson, thriller
bob marley, redemption song
I was wondering if someone could help me write a simple search script for this text file and then display the results in an web page. I would like them to search by artist's name, the name of the song, or both. I also would like to handle substrings (ie: the query "jack" returns all the songs by Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Jackson 5, etc.).
Is there anyone out there willing to write this basic script?
As I said, I am not familiar with PHP at all, but I am a programmer. So after the framework is layed for this script, I'm positive I could edit it to my needs.
Thank you all very much in advance.
