XHTML/CSS dynamic table creation


I have a text file (Example text file) that contains (for now) six columns (order of columns can be changed if needed) that are separated by tabs (better suggestions?) per line (better suggestions?), this file is be manually updated with new entries on occasion, new entries will just be added to the bottom of the text file.

## Example text file ([url removed, login to view]) ##

Item Site Item Name Item End Time Item TZ Item End Date Item URL

Amazon Bag of parts that you want for no reason 08:45:15 CST 10/31/06

eBay Container of things you may use someday 23:59:00 PDT 10/25/06

Craigslist Tray of stuff just to have around 12:30:59 EST 10/15/06

I need a script that will check to see if the text file (Example text file) exists and is not empty before continuing, script should then read through the text file and dynamically create an XHTML/CSS table using the external stylesheet [url removed, login to view]), script should also update the text file by removing expired entries.

Table (Example table) should be centered on page, each TR should have an alternating background color, I would like some whitespace between the TH and start of the TR's and between the TR's themselves, Item Time Remaining should be time adjusted to system time (PDT) and Item Link will open Item URL.

## Example table ##

Item Name Item Time Remaining Item Link

Tray of stuff just to have around 8d 19h 31m Craigslist

Container of things you may use someday 14d 8h 20m eBay

Bag of parts that you want for no reason 31d 1h 5m Amazon

## [url removed, login to view] ##

[url removed, login to view] {




margin:1em 1em 1em 2em;


[url removed, login to view] caption {




[url removed, login to view] td {

border:1px #000 solid;

padding:[url removed, login to view];


[url removed, login to view] th {


border:1px #000 solid;

padding:[url removed, login to view];



[url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view]{

background-color: #FFF;


[url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] {

background-color: #CCC;


I will be using the script on my Linux server and would prefer it be written in BASH/PHP so that I may try and maintain it, server is running Apache 2.2.3-2

, PHP 5.1.6-3, Zend Optimizer 3.0.1, and MySQL 5.0.26-1, I am also using CMS Made Simple 1.0.2 (utilizes Smarty templates).

Thank you,

- James

It looks like the example text file and example table I am describing are not displaying correctly - the examples actually have multiple tabs seperating the fields not the single space being displayed, I have .png images available of how these examples should actually appear had the post not been reformated, please contact me if you would like these files.

I hope I did not make the script requirments and or description to confusing, basically I have a text file that contains information related to online marketplace auctions and sales that I currently have running, in the text file I have information such as on which online marketplace the item is listed, the description of the item, the date and time the listing was started, the TZ used by the online marketplace, and the full URL of the listing, each field is seperated by tabs and each line in the file is for an individual listing, what I want the script to do is dynamically create an XHTL/CSS table using an external stylesheet, the table will contain formated, sorted, and modified information based on the processing of the text file, some of the online marketplaces list items with an end date using their system TZ which may or may not be the same as my TZ, if the TZ's are different I need the time remaining shown in the table adjusted to my systems TZ, I want to avoid people having to do TZ conversions if possible, I am open to changing the order or format of the information in the text file if needed as long as the text file remains easy to update, as I mentioned before I have created a mockup image of what I would like the finished table layout to look like if you are interested.

please note that this script will be run as a cron job, I am sorry I forgot to mention this previously...
