Getting Filenames from a directory into an array

Discussion in 'PHP' started by RunningRunners, Oct 27, 2012.

    Hello, I have a folder called csv which resides on public_html. All the files are .csv files. How do I get all the file names into an array, without having the extension.

    Thanks

    $folderArr = ("myfolder/*.csv");
    foreach ($folderArr as $filename){
    echo $filename."\n";
    }

    *SIGH*, people are dumber for having read the responses so far. As a rule of thumb you can't trust explode since you don't know how many periods are in a filename since there's no real restriction on that anymore... and I have no clue what "thatabuts" is trying to do as that's just gibberish.

    The correct answer is PHP's pathinfo command.
    http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.pathinfo.php

    Preferably after a glob to actually pull the directory using a filter.
    http://php.net/manual/en/function.glob.php

    
    $fileList=glob('csv/*.csv');
    foreach ($fileList as $fileName) {
      echo pathinfo($fileName,PATHINFO_FILENAME),'<br />';
    }
    
    Code (markup):
    Note that pathinfo can be used to pull an array containing all the values, or you can pass different named constants to it to pull information like PATHINFO_EXTENSION, PATHINFO_DIRECTORY or even PATHINFO_BASENAME.
