  1. Can't seem to find a solution to this: I want to use the following readdir code: ++++++++++++ <?php if ($handle = opendir('.')) { while (false !== ($entry = readdir($handle))) { if ($entry != "." && $entry != ".." && $entry != "sort.php" && $entry != "sort2.php" && $entry != "index.php") { echo "<a href='$entry'>$entry</a><br />"; } } closedir($handle); } ?> ++++++++++++ The above code works perfectly to display all the files in my directory. (All the files to be displayed on my webpage are .pdf files (the code above excludes the .php files in the directory).) These pdf files consist of multiple Catalog_date.pdf, Schedule_date.pdf and Newsletter_date.pdf files, each of which category I want to place in a separate column. To do this, I have three CSS column class <div> sections. I will put the above code in each of the three <div class> sections and exclude two of the three categories depending on which column it is. I was using another code to do this that works perfectly in all respects. It lists the separate categories in separate columns. (see image file below): ++++++++++++ <?php $string = 'Catalog'; echo ""; $PATH = $_ENV['DOCUMENT_WWW']; $d=$PATH.'.'; $files=array(); $dir = opendir($d) or die("couldn't open directory"); while ($f = readdir($dir)) { if (!eregi("\.jpg",$f) && $f!=='.' && $f!=='..' && eregi("$string",$f) && eregi("\.pdf",$f)){ #if does not match .jpg . and .. array_push($files,"$f"); echo "<a href='$f'>$f</a><br>"; } if( is_dir($_dir)) closedir( $d );} ?> ++++++++++++ But "eregi" has been deprecated and I wanted to update my php code to account for this. However, I don't know how to simulate the "f (!eregi("\.jpg",$f) && $f!=='.' && $f!=='..' && eregi("$string",$f) && eregi("\.pdf",$f))" part that allows me to fill the Catalog column with only the Catalog_date.pdf files, etc. (I have attached my currently working page that uses the older code as the example of what I want to do.) Can anyone help me with either including only those files that begin with the word Calendar_, Schedule_ or Newsletter_ for each script; or excluding two of the three files that begin with those words? I have looked at the info in the PHP Manual as well as other Googled places, but don't find enough information to make the code function. Hope this makes sense. Any assistance greatly appreciated.
