    listing files

    is there any way to get a list of files and folders contained in a location?
    say we have location www.blah.com:

    www.blah.com
    !
    +one(folder)
    !
    +two(folder)
    !
    +index.html

    and I want a way of diplaying that one, two and index.html are there ,starting from the location...

    thanx

    This will do it in PHP:

    PHP Code:
    <?PHP
    $root 
    $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]; #set the root directory
    $directory ""#leave blank to display the root directory
    $path $root.$directory#concatenat the root and the desired directory
    $handle opendir($path); #open the directory
    while ($item readdir($handle)) { #loop through the directory
        
    echo $item."<br>"#echo the files/directories 
    }
    closedir($handle); #close the directory
    ?>

    err

    ok if I get it (I dont know php)
    this will list all files sitting next to itself

    but,(sorry i should have said) i want the files in a particular location, not that of this file..
    I dont need a prompt or anything, i can hard code the adress but is it possible?

    will this recurse subdirectories btw? (just in case, not important)

    thx

    To answer questions 1 and 2:

    It will list all the files in the directory you specify here:

    $root = $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]; #set the root directory
    $directory = ""; #leave blank to display the root directory

    The above will display your root directory, if you want it to display your www.yourdomain.com/images folder, you would do this:

    $root = $_SERVER["DOCUMENT_ROOT"]; #set the root directory
    $directory = "/images"; #leave blank to display the root directory

    And, for you third question, no, it will not recurse subdirectories, though it could be made to, with a bit more work.

    The original code should work fine. Make sure you saved the file with a .php extention.

    No, you can't display the file listing of someone else domain. (Thank God)...
