For an example we will use the file test.txt to explain it
The real difference comes in using the method file() instead of fopen()
Define the file name in to a variable
Example: $file1 = "./test.txt";
Create an instance of the file using the method file('filename')
Example: $lines = file($file1);
Here we create a file instance for the file by passing the variable $file1 created in step 1.
The result is stored in the variable $lines, which will be an array of lines.
Now we will use a loop to capture every element in the array one by one and print the lies.
foreach($lines as $line_num => $line)
In the above code we used the loop foreach to capture the elements or objects in the array of lines ($lines).
Each line is printed used the code "echo $line";
