I'm not gone, I just quit posting on this subject, because things got so twisted along the way, that everyone is now perceiving me to not know the slightest thing about PHP and being someone I'm not! In my very original post on this series, I was using opendir and someone had suggested using glob. Well I didn't know much about glob, because of course I hadn't got that far yet, but since someone else had backed up the suggestion from the original poster I was dumb enough to jump forward to the unknown and cause myself to get confused and flustered and my train of thought blew right out the window! But, I'm the kind of person that doesn't give up! I was determined to figure out how to get glob to work for what I was trying to do because it was suggested by people who KNOW what they are doing and I KNOW they know what they are doing! I kept telling myself "glob is the answer", so really there's no reason to be SMUG about it! I should have went back to using opendir, but if I did that, someone would be on my ass about that sooner or later, harping at me that they showed me how to use glob! To top it off, I started dabbling and trying to learn PHP, back somewhere around early 2000 or 2001 and by that time I had my 2nd child on the way, but by 2002 I had had 3 kids born in '99, 2000 and 2002. So I had to put what I wanted to do on hold until here about a year ago, some things have changed since then in the PHP world and I'm pushing 45 years old and my brain isn't as sharp as it was 20 years ago! So, yes I got confused, and I didn't know much about return because I hadn't used it yet but that doesn't give anyone the right to judge me on that basis! With that said, I just may leave the list. After all if this is all I'm going to get out of it, it's not worth it! -- David M.
