I am currently working on a PHP project and I came across the fscanf() function. I have read the official PHP documentation about it but I'm still having some trouble understanding how it works. I would really appreciate it if someone could provide me with a clear explanation and perhaps an example of how to use it properly.
To provide some context, I'm working on a script that needs to read information from a file. I know that fscanf() is used to scan input from a file according to a specified format, but I'm not entirely sure how to correctly define that format.
For example, let's say I have a file called "data.txt" that contains the following lines:
John Doe,25,New York
Jane Smith,30,Los Angeles
I would like to use fscanf() to extract the name, age, and city from each line. How would I go about doing that? Any help or insights would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
