I have the following code
Code:
$fp = fopen('/output/report_sort.txt', 'w');
if(!$fp)
die('Could not create / open text file for writing.');
if(fwrite($fp, $txt1) === false)
die('Could not write to text file.');

// Print the totals for each category
$data = file('/output/report_sort.txt', FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES|FILE_SKIP_EMPTY_LINES);
usort($data, fn($a, $b)=>substr($a,11,2)<=>substr($b,11,2));              // sort by code number
$codes = [];
foreach ($data as $d) {
$p = strpos($d, ')');
$k = substr($d, 11, $p-10);
if (!isset($codes[$k])) {
$codes[$k] = 1;
} else {
$codes[$k]++;
}
}
//echo (join("<br>", $data));
echo ("<font color='blue'><b><h3>Total clicks</h3></b></font>");
foreach ($codes as $code => $total)  {
printf("%s <font color='red'><b>Total clicks = %d<br></b></font>", $code, $total);
}
echo "<br />";

which from this data

Code:

Consider using php's built-in array functions in this way

report_sort.txt
Code:
05/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 Spain Cartagena Murcia

I think what I am wanting to do is a sort per country and city i.e for data

The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3

the totals would be
05/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 Spain Cartagena Murcia Total clicks = 1
05/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 Spain Nerja Malaga Total clicks = 1
05/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 United States Cedar Springs Michigan Total clicks = 1
05/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 Spain Madrid Madrid Total clicks = 1
06/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 United States Edmore Michigan Total clicks = 4
08/10/2023 07 The Eighth Day 2023 (El Octavo Día) 1-10-2023.mp3 Ireland Dublin Leinster Total clicks = 7

Then the same for each category

To combine identical lines in a text file using PHP, you can follow these steps:
Online PHP compiler playground CodeExampler
1. Read the File:
Use file_get_contents() or file() to read the content of the text file into an array or string.

Code:
php
   $fileContent = file_get_contents('yourfile.txt');
   // or
   $fileLines = file('yourfile.txt', FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES);

2. Remove Duplicate Lines:
Use array_unique() to remove duplicate lines from the array.

Code:
php
   $uniqueLines = array_unique($fileLines);

3. Combine Lines:
If needed, use implode() to join the lines into a single string.

Code:
php
   $combinedContent = implode("\n", $uniqueLines);

4. Write Back to File:
Use file_put_contents() or another method to save the modified content back to the file.

Code:
php
   file_put_contents('yourfile.txt', $combinedContent);

Here's a concise example combining these steps:

PHP:
$fileLines = file('yourfile.txt', FILE_IGNORE_NEW_LINES);
$uniqueLines = array_unique($fileLines);
$combinedContent = implode("\n", $uniqueLines);
file_put_contents('yourfile.txt', $combinedContent);

This PHP script reads a text file, removes duplicate lines, combines the unique lines, and then writes the result back to the same file. Adjust the file paths and names as needed for your specific case.
