What's the file format, if things are delimited, just read the first line out 
from the file, after getting it with file() or something, and then use 
explode() to break it up into an array based on the delimeter.

Then you can foreach through it. 

Assuming it's comma seperated, this would work I think:

$file = file("filename.csv");
$columns = explode(",", $file[0]);
echo count($columns)." total columns.<br>\n";
foreach($columns as $column) {
        echo "Column: $column<br>\n";

Is that what you mean?
