best way to parse text files

is there a best way to parse text files?

i imagine the use of something like:

$txt = get_file_contents(somefile.txt);
$txt_array = explode($txt,'|');
foreach($txt_array AS $record){
$element = $txt_array = explode($record,';');
// do something with each element
//clear up variables

is this good code or is there a proven better way? i do need to use each data field individually....

Depends on what your file holds, but there is nothing against using the above.
