I have a database with a table made of 3 fields: name, latitude and longitude. I can easily extract data in CSV format and use a specific software to convert them to TomTom format (.OV2). Is there a way to make it via PHP?

Basically, I need to:

1) list a specific amount of records from MySql (no problem here)
2) save them in a CSV format (no problem here)
3) convert the saved CSV to .OV2 format

I know a great free service that lets you upload a CSV file and then download a multple-format conversion:

It's very nice but I need something I can edit/modify to directly interact with my database. Any help would be very appreciated, thanks.
