This is probably very simple, but I tried looking in php.net and some other web sites, but cannot find the solution to my problem.
There is a file at a certain server www.someserver.com/somefile.txt, which contains text data of roughly this format:
Birthdate=Some birth date
and so on.
What I want to do in the php script is: fetch the information in the text file and take out just what, say, Occupation is = to. In this case, "some occupation". What is the best way to do this and what functions is it best to use here?

First you can read the files from the other server using file() function.
//read the text file from the other server.
//and put it an array.
//now loop that values.
//split that row value based on '='.
//if row is occupation.
//print the occupation here.
you may find out the occupation row using regex functions as well.
