Can this be improved to exclude anything with a '.' or a '-' in it's name?
This will exclude the smileys and cgi-bin and such. If it can be persuaded
to read a 1 line description from each subdirectory it could then use THAT
as the text in the link, instead of the name. This could be useful in many
    Sure.  Change:

        if (is_dir($d) && $d != '.' && $d != '..') {


        if (is_dir($d) && !preg_match('/[\.\-]/',$d)) {

    Keep in mind, though, that the change will no longer show anything
that matches the below either:

    In other words, you may instead want to explicitly state which
directories to omit, and then drop anything that begins with a dot as
well (hidden directories on *NIX-like boxes) like so:

$excludes[] = 'cgi-bin';
$excludes[] = 'vti_cnf';
$excludes[] = 'private';
$excludes[] = 'thumbnail';

$ls = scandir(dirname(__FILE__));
foreach ($ls as $d) {
  if (is_dir($d) && !preg_match('/^\./',basename($d)) &&
!in_array(basename($d),$excludes)) {
      echo '<li><a href="'.$d.'">'.$d.'</a><br/>'.PHP_EOL;

damn you Daniel... I was just about to reply with almost the EXACT same

I think the last example would probably be the best one to use, that way
you can still have some directories with the . or - or even the _ in the
names, and still be able to display them.


ps thanks for saving me type it all out Daniel :)
