Web App Integration

This makes me wonder if I couldn't use these files from my php or perl web applications to do dynamic zip code / city lookups without having to purchase access to a database...

Has anyone tried this?

The zipcodes file will allow you to easily find a zip code for a given city. But the reverse search won't work - a city like Chicago will have many zip codes and given the information in the file you can't resolve which zip code goes with a specified address.
