It should be in the chit chat forum as it is not a B4A question (should we accept PHP, C, Assembler and other languages in the B4A forum?)
You could search on Google: "site:basic4ppc.com PHP Questions".
You're right but, as you can see, posting in b4a questions I have received no responses and in Chit Chat it would be read much less.
The name, "Chit Chat", suggests "forum of things not related to programming".
Additionally, this problem also exists reading a file using other languages (b4a, b4j and b4i).
However, it does not matter, since the only answers were these yours.
