Why would you want a file instead of a richer data structure that you
usually get from such a query? A filesystem is really a pretty basic
If you want to deal w/ a database as just a file, though, you could
try SQLite; it's probably a lot easier to use than mysql.

My filesystem is 1337er. It doesn't support any of that stuff, but
it's written in Haskell!
