I'm very new to PHP, and don't know where to look to answer this 

Is it possible to use a collection of delimited text files with PHP 
instead of a database engine? I'm trying to save $50/month, which is 
what MySQL support costs from my ISP (can't move ISPs).

The application is a simple form-driven search function, having three 
multi-select listboxes that would be populated from three text files 
as criteria to pull records from a single text file.

Would such a setup require PERL or the like? And, if so, would it be 
better to build the whole thing in PERL (which I don't know, either)?

Any pointers to information on the subject gratefully received.
