Unviseral Index File

(About the author)
     This code can be used as a universal index file. It will create links to any files within it's current directory. The only customization needed is in the $allowedFiles array. This array contains the extenstions you want to allow (duh). I created this for something I was doing for work, and thought I would share it with the world.

    $pathInfo = pathinfo($SCRIPT_FILENAME);
    $curDir = $pathInfo["dirname"];
    $curFile = $pathInfo["basename"];
    $dir = opendir($curDir);
    while ($file = readdir($dir))
    for ($i=0; $i<=count($allowFiles); $i++)
    if (is_file($curDir."/".$file))
    $allowedExt = $allowFiles[$i];
    if (!preg_match('/$allowedExt/', $file))
    echo "<a href=\"$file\">$file</a><br>\r";

Sorry that the formatting is kind of messed up on the code.

I'm fairly new to PHP and needed a chunk of code that does exactly what this script does. I have looked around for many hours trying to solve this problem. This is last piece I was missing from a total solution. Deperately needed the array handling and the hyperlinking! Thanks a bunch.

To bad the code only works on Apache because of the $SCRIPT_FILENAME variable.
