PHP Flatfile package is a light but powerful flat ...

php_flatfile_package by Luke Plant is a light but powerful flat file database package.
This package is formed by two PHP files, fully documented. It is very easy to use, and with the example based tutorial in the documentation you should be up and running in a couple of minutes.
The package is built to be very flexible and extensible, while providing the majority of built-in functionality that would be commonly used. For example, WHERE clause functionality is provided by a family of whereclause classes.
This means first that the selectWhere(), updateSetWhere() and deleteWhere() functions are all equally powerful without having any duplicate code, and secondly that you can provide your own WhereClause objects (that implement the WhereClause interface), if the builtin functionality is not enough.
Also, while there are three builtin comparison methods (used in a number of places), they can in each instance be replaced with user defined functions in case you need to do things like case insensitve sorting/comparing.
It is also built to avoid arbitrary limitations (while maintaining simple syntax for the common cases). For example, you can have arbitarily complex WHERE clause expressions (by combining WhereClause objects using things like AndWhereClause), and can specifiy ORDER BY with any number of fields.
The format of the database files is tab delimited text files, and no database schemas, indexes for optimisation or any other files are used. (Note that the format means you cannot store tabs or newline characters directly in a table -- you will have to escape these yourself before storing them).
The package is run against a set of tests which are now fairly comprehensive, so you can have confidence in the quality.
The package provides no support for relational features like joins, or for different data types, and these features will not be added.
