NETTUTS.com:
Scanning Folders with PHP
November 13, 2008 @ 14:18:28

The NETTUTS.com site has posted a new PHP-related screencast that covers a simple script to scan over the contents of folders in PHP. To illustrate, they create an image gallery script that mirrors the filesystem structure.

Let's imagine that you want to build a page that will display snapshots of your latest work. [...] In such instances, the best solution is to make PHP scan your "portfolio" folder and dynamically create the code for you. If you want to update your page with a new snapshot, all that you need to do is drag the image, and its respective thumbnail, into the appropriate folders - and PHP will do the rest. Let's build it now!

The screencast comes complete with the entire source and a link to a demo to show the end result.
