I've done a directory listing, but i only want it to show certain file types. I cant figure out how to find the file extension?

The only function i have found is filetype() but it returns directory/files etc. rather than the extension.

is the only way to do it by examining the name and putting out the extension? Not quite sure how to do that either... thanks for the help
