MySQL on .txt file


Is there any alternative to MySQL? I mean, without using any mysql host or server, can I manipulate and enjoy the features of MySQL by having the database in a file in the same directory, say - db.txt?

Or is there any php class out there for this functionality?

Not all the features of MySQL, no. But you can have SQL type features if thats enough. Check out SQLite, http://www.sqlite.org/

There are a few libraries out there to function as [My]SQL using raw text files.

You can try Flatfile

I knew of TextDB too, but was abandoned
http://textdb.sourceforge.net/
Anyway there is the latest version available for download.

Regards,

Juan

Just be warned that text files are much more likely to become corrupted, and can not handle as much data.
