Create a script to which you can pass a file namem and calls show_source() on the file name.
http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.show-source.php Be very careful to check the input, such that the file name parameter which eventually gets passed to show_source() cannot be one which you do not want to be displayed to everyone in the world. When using the function to show off living code, I make sure the only files that can be viewed are files in specific directories. I also make sure the file exists in the file system ... displaying an appropriate messages when the file will not be diplayed. g.luck, ~Chris /"\ \ / September 11, 2001 X We Are All New Yorkers / \ rm -rf /bin/laden On Thu, 14 Feb 2002, Kevin Stone wrote: > How can I open a local PHP script and view its code to the browser?
