Hi Ralph,

First, please don't top-post.

Second, please use complete words. 'u' is not a word.

Third, I have no idea why you feel that such an knee-jerk reaction and
abusive post would be helpful or useful. If you have nothing to add to
the conversation, do not post.

Hi Haig,

Yes, this is possible; there is nothing special about creating such a
file. Simply construct the filename as a string in normal PHP fashion,
and then use that filename with file_put_contents(), fopen(), or
similar, to create the file. 

It will be hard to help you further without an example (as short as you
can make it) of what you are trying to do, and an explanation of how
it's failing to do what you want it to do.

Please post a short example of the code you have which is failing, and
a longer explanation of exactly what you want to achieve, and perhaps we
can explain how to make it work or suggest a better solution to your

Ralph did get one thing right, in that it's generally better to explain
what you're trying to do instead of explaining how you're trying to do
it. There are many ways to do almost any task, so it is possible that
there is another way to do what you want which is simpler and less
