What would be best...
Ok, I'm starting a website for my cities swim team, and I need to post recent meet results. But the problem with that is, the meet results are exported in ugly *.txt format. So what I'm working on is making a format that I can sort out with php and put it in tables and rows and columns to make it look good. The other problem is, I can't spend days taking those text files and turning them into another format, that would take ages and I don't have the time. So I was wondering if there is some way I can take the outputted result (In text format) and using a computer language to convert it into this new type of file. I'm guessing it must be possible with some language considering if you open wordpad documents with notepad, they have all this encrypted shit all over the place. So what should I learn to do this?
