Rightio, I need to count the number of files in a directory then assign that number to a variable in my website. Here is what I have thus far.

PHP Script to count files
PHP Code:
$directory "../comics/";
if (
glob($directory "*.png") != false)
{
 
$filecount count(glob($directory "*.png"));
 echo 
$filecount;
}
else
{
 echo 
0;

And here is my javascript which is inside my html page
Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
var numofImages = "<?=$filecount?>";
var random_img = new Array();
for(var i=0;i<numofImages-1;i++) { 
   random_img[i] = '<a href="comics/'+i+'.png"><img src="comics/'+i+'.png"; width="260" height="320" border="0" alt=""></a>';
}

var random_number = Math.floor((Math.random()*random_img.length));
random_img[random_number];
document.write(random_img[random_number]);
</script>
Now, my problem is this, it wont get the file count. If I set numofImages to an actual number the entire thing works perfectly fine. But for some reason it doesn't seem to get the file count. Any tips?

Cheers.
