Simple Datafeed Loader.
Use [[CSV_DESERIALIZE]] instead.
A datafeed is any charactar delimited text file with 3 or more fields per line. Other delimiters may also be used. The first row must always contain the column header field names for it to be a proper datafeed. If you need to deserialize more complex comma seperated (csv) file data already loaded in variable memory or prepend the column headers/ field names into the first row then use [[CSV_DESERIALIZE]] instead.
filename (string) may either be php$ variable or string value.
delimiter(string) is the separator between the fields in each row.
Example: the data file csv_datafeed.txt contains:
name,id,color,size Washington,1,blue,big Oregon,2,"green",small California,3,red,huge
The following code will import the datafeed or csv file and deserialize it into variable memory. Field names are populated to the matrix_fields array. Arrays with names corresponding to column field names will be populated with the row values.
Use php to test dump the variables:
<?php print_r($matrix_fields); print_r($name); print_r($id); print_r($color); print_r($size); ?>
Note that since the pipe symbol is a reserved delimiter in the TerraDctl shortcodes, it should not be used inside a shortcode for anything other than separating parameters. For pipe delimited files:
<?php $pipe="|"; ?> [[LOAD_DATAFEED:csv_datafeed.txt|$pipe]]
