what the codes does is to just upload files, very simple really.
actually it has no error and it works very fine, as you notice only USERFILE1 is currently active and working
and not userfile2, userfile3 and soon.

what i want to incorporate here is to make USERFILE2, 3, 4 and 5 active using looping while make the codes
stay short.

now, do i need to use while loop here? or for loop here? or should i create a function to do this or array?
or else Class?

i have no nice idea right now to make this happen, so i hope you help me with this.

maybe a bright simple snippet of codes to show me on how to do this is very helpful?

Thank you very much in advance.

first change userfile1-5 to userfile_1-5

for ($_POST as $name => $value)
if (preg_match ("/userfile_[1-5]{1}/", $name))
  $name = explode ("_", $name);
  $num = $name[1];
  $file = $value; //do stuff with these values
this what u wanted?
