I am wondering what the best language to do a project i have would be.  I am thinking PHP would work the best but am not sure and would like to know what others think and if what i am trying to do is possible.

What i got is a folder with multiple txt files.
Examples:
Don_printers.txt
Mike_printers.txt
Bill_printers.txt
What i need to be able to do is from a web interface be able to see a list of the files and be able to edit them and create new ones if needed.  
So say i needed a new file i click a button it asks for name i put "Joe"  It then creates a text file called Joe_printers.txt
The contents of these files is like this. Just 2 columns (IP, and Printer)with a comma separating the entries.
Example:
192.168.1.1, Joe Printer 1
192.168.10.2, Joe Printer 2

Any ideas on what the best way and best lang would be for this?
