Hi everyone, I have been playing around with some code the list helped me with
a while back and I'm not grasping the concept between return and echo and the
PHP manual doesn't answer this, unless I'm missing something. There is an
example at the very bottom of PHP's return manual, but it's confusing.

So now I'm left wondering why return will only give me the first result in an
array, but echo will give me all the results of the array. Using stuart's
example he had sent me a while back I've messed around with it and modified it
to better understand it:

function filename($prefix)
   $matches = glob('images/property_pics/'.$prefix.'*');
   foreach($matches as $filename){
   return $filename;

echo completeImageFilename($row['MLS_No']);

With the above code I only get the first image of each picture name, but when I
change return to echo, it groups and displays all the pics that have the same
picture name.

I've read thru 9 responses to the OP and not one of you mentioned that the code presented is problematic in itself. Very forgiving, but perhaps someone should have suggested that he post "actual code" when looking for help in the future, and not some typing that is supposed to represent the problem.

In this case, I"m looking for the function he called "completeImageFilename"
