filesize of function.fgetcsv.php

I really would like to use the fgetcsv function in a php application. The thing is that my csv file contains 6 million unique codes and has a 36 Mb filesize. Does fgetcsv handles files this big? Or is there a better solution?

Greetz,

I'm fairly certain that this function will open that CSV file fine. I don't think there is a specific limit on the file size.

If you're unsure, check this link out. It explains the function well:

No problems. Just don't read it all in one statement, but parse it line by line (as fgetcsv is supposed to work).

Hello all,

@dwaynecharrington
I have tried this solution, it works. After doing some searching there was even a faster solution: using LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE 1.3 million records within a few seconds... amazing.

Thanks for your comment.
