I would like to join short some mp3 files together for people to listen to on their mp3 players.

These will not be illegal files.

I will not know what files to join until they are requested and the order of the files is important and will vary.

I don't know where to really start. Could it be done as a playlist that lists the files to play that the users could download aolng with the playlist. I don't even know thje structure of an mp3 playlist. If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

I have dynamically created playlists before, different playlist formats are structured in different ways. What I did was create a playlist in WMP and opened it with a text editor to see how it was formatted, it was then easy to create with PHPs file functions, and then just save it with the correct extension.

you could play around with system commands. try to find a command line program to join the files
$command = "<program> join 1.mp3 2.mp3";

s ystem($command, $output);
no space for the above command

you could use besweet to join the files. check the command and replace it.

That should do the job!
