    Which would be bigger?
    MySQL or a txt file,
    and what would the approximate difference be?
    (assume the txt file is 100mb)

    Thanks.

    i cant tell you the exact difference in file size, but as an educated guess, i'd say they'd be "APPROXIMATELY" the same...

    as for capability, mySQL is MUCH MORE capable than a text file and MUCH FASTER .... its best if you work in mySQL, thats just my recommendation
