Have never written a CGI in my life but you got me thinking; a quick Google found me a php script to "print" a folder listing.

So now my .lc script on my on-rev serve puts the url of the .php page on the server with the mp3s into a variable -- which gives me the list of file names I was trying to get via ftp. Works slick.

FTP is probably not the best solution for this, for reasons too
numerable to list this morning.

But for the task as described, other simpler, more efficient, and
more secure alternatives exist:

Can you run a CGI on the server holding the MP3 files to obtain
that list?

Or, if they're within you're web root, can you use Apache's
directory listing?
