Hello all, my name is Kirk Bailey, and I am new to php, so please be
forbearing. I code in python, and am trying to learn this language as
our new client runs a web business based in it.
I need a routine that will return a list of every directory immediately
under the current directory- but nothing else, just a list of
directories, 1 level deep, NO FILES, no listing of current dir or prior
Now in python, I would use os.walk, and use the list of dirs and throw
the other 2 lists away, but this ain't Kansas anymore. Does php even DO
Um, a list is a 1 dimenional array, if have a list ALIST and you plug in
3, you get back the contents of cell 3 in the list, whaqtever that
content is. so if cell 3 in a 6 celled list was "Ruby" then ALIST
would return the string "ruby".
It's easy to iterate lists. For instance:
for dir in ALIST:
print '<li><a href=\"/dir>",dir,'</a>
This would let me produce an ordered list of directories, each a link to
This way, when a client installs a new product, the home page area
listing products offered automatically updates.
Further embellishment would let me replace the dir name with a BRIEF
description from a descriptor file read from that dir. Now how to do
this in php?
Very Truly yours,
