$data = file('c:\file.txt');

for($counter = 0; $counter < count($data); $counter++)
        $data[$counter] = explode("\t",$data[$counter]);

Poof. For:

bob     nina    jim     joe

You will get:

$data[0][0] = 'bob';
$data[0][1] = 'nina';
$data[0][2] = 'jim';
$data[0][3] = 'joe';

Nice and easy to recurse through.
