readdir

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

readdirRead entry from directory handle

Description

string readdir ([ resource $dir_handle ] )

Returns the name of the next entry in the directory. The entries are returned in the order in which they are stored by the filesystem.

Parameters

dir_handle

The directory handle resource previously opened with opendir(). If the directory handle is not specified, the last link opened by opendir() is assumed.

Return Values

Returns the entry name on success or FALSE on failure.

Warning

This function may return Boolean FALSE, but may also return a non-Boolean value which evaluates to FALSE. Please read the section on Booleans for more information. Use the === operator for testing the return value of this function.

Examples

Example #1 List all entries in a directory

Please note the fashion in which readdir()'s return value is checked in the examples below. We are explicitly testing whether the return value is identical to (equal to and of the same type as--see Comparison Operators for more information) FALSE since otherwise, any directory entry whose name evaluates to FALSE will stop the loop (e.g. a directory named "0").

<?php

if ($handle opendir('/path/to/files')) {
    echo 
"Directory handle: $handle\n";
    echo 
"Entries:\n";

    
/* This is the correct way to loop over the directory. */
    
while (false !== ($entry readdir($handle))) {
        echo 
"$entry\n";
    }

    
/* This is the WRONG way to loop over the directory. */
    
while ($entry readdir($handle)) {
        echo 
"$entry\n";
    }

    
closedir($handle);
}
?>

Example #2 List all entries in the current directory and strip out . and ..

<?php
if ($handle opendir('.')) {
    while (
false !== ($entry readdir($handle))) {
        if (
$entry != "." && $entry != "..") {
            echo 
"$entry\n";
        }
    }
    
closedir($handle);
}
?>

A function I created to non-recursively get the path of all files and folders including sub-directories of a given folder.
Though I have not tested it completely, it seems to be working.

<?php

/**
* Finds path, relative to the given root folder, of all files and directories in the given directory and its sub-directories non recursively.
* Will return an array of the form
* array(
*   'files' => [],
*   'dirs'  => [],
* )
* @author sreekumar
* @param string $root
* @result array
*/
function read_all_files($root = '.'){
 
$files  = array('files'=>array(), 'dirs'=>array());
 
$directories  = array();
 
$last_letter  = $root[strlen($root)-1];
 
$root  = ($last_letter == '\\' || $last_letter == '/') ? $root : $root.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR;
 
 
$directories[]  = $root;
 
  while (
sizeof($directories)) {
   
$dir  = array_pop($directories);
    if (
$handle = opendir($dir)) {
      while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if (
$file == '.' || $file == '..') {
          continue;
        }
       
$file  = $dir.$file;
        if (
is_dir($file)) {
         
$directory_path = $file.DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR;
         
array_push($directories, $directory_path);
         
$files['dirs'][]  = $directory_path;
        } elseif (
is_file($file)) {
         
$files['files'][]  = $file;
        }

A variation on listing all the files in a directory recursively. The code illustrates a basic technique : the use of an auxiliary function. It avoids building temporary lists which are merged on the way back. Note that the array which collects the information must be passed by reference.

<?php
function listdir($dir='.') {
    if (!
is_dir($dir)) {
        return
false;
    }
   
   
$files = array();
   
listdiraux($dir, $files);

    return
$files;
}

function
listdiraux($dir, &$files) {
   
$handle = opendir($dir);
    while ((
$file = readdir($handle)) !== false) {
        if (
$file == '.' || $file == '..') {
            continue;
        }
       
$filepath = $dir == '.' ? $file : $dir . '/' . $file;
        if (
is_link($filepath))
            continue;
        if (
is_file($filepath))
           
$files[] = $filepath;
        else if (
is_dir($filepath))
           
listdiraux($filepath, $files);
    }
   
closedir($handle);
}

$files = listdir('.');
sort($files, SORT_LOCALE_STRING);

foreach (
$files as $f) {
    echo 
$f, "\n";
}
?>

Looking through the examples, I can't see any that do a simple check on the value of the directory resource that opendir returns and is subsequently used by readdir.

If opendir returns false, and you simply pass this to the readdir call in the while loop, you will get an infinite loop.

A simple test helps prevent this:

<?php

$dir
= opendir($path);
while (
$dir && ($file = readdir($dir)) !== false) {
 
// do stuff
}

This function is used to display random image i.e. at header position of a site. It reads the whole directory and then randomly print the image. I think it may be useful for someone.

<?php
if ($handle = opendir('images/')) {
  
$dir_array = array();
    while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if(
$file!="." && $file!=".."){
           
$dir_array[] = $file;
        }
    }
    echo
$dir_array[rand(0,count($dir_array)-1)];
   
closedir($handle);
}
?>

A very flexible function to recursively list all files in a directory with the option to perform a custom set of actions on those files and/or include extra information about them in the returned data.

----------

SYNTAX:
   $array = process_dir ( $dir , $recursive = FALSE )
        $dir  (STRING)   =  Directory to process
  $recursive  (BOOLEAN)  =  [Optional] Recursive if set to TRUE

RETURN VALUES:
  The function returns an indexed array, one entry for every file. Each entry is an associative array, containing the basic information 'filename' (name of file) and 'dirpath' (directory component of path to file), and any additional keys you configure. Returns FALSE on failure.

----------

  To allow you to configure another key, the entry for each file is stored in an array, "$entry" for each iteration. You can easily return any additional data for a given file using $entry['keyname'] = ... (Note that this data can be any variable type - string, bool, float, resource etc)

  There is a string variable "$path" available, which contains the full path of the current file, relative to the initial "$dir" supplied at function call. This data is also available in it's constituent parts, "$dir" and "$file". Actions for each file can be constructed on the basis of these variables. The variables "$list", "$handle" and "$recursive" should not be used within your code.

----------

Simply insert you code into the sections indicated by the comments below and your away!

The following example returns filename, filepath, and file modified time (in a human-readable string) for all items, filesize for all files but not directories, and a resource stream for all files with 'log' in the filename (but not *.log files).

<?php

 
function process_dir($dir,$recursive = FALSE) {
    if (
is_dir($dir)) {
      for (
$list = array(),$handle = opendir($dir); (FALSE !== ($file = readdir($handle)));) {
        if ((
$file != '.' && $file != '..') && (file_exists($path = $dir.'/'.$file))) {
          if (
is_dir($path) && ($recursive)) {
           
$list = array_merge($list, process_dir($path, TRUE));
          } else {
           
$entry = array('filename' => $file, 'dirpath' => $dir);

//---------------------------------------------------------//
//                     - SECTION 1 -                       //
//          Actions to be performed on ALL ITEMS           //
//-----------------    Begin Editable    ------------------//

 
$entry['modtime'] = filemtime($path);

//-----------------     End Editable     ------------------//
           
do if (!is_dir($path)) {
//---------------------------------------------------------//
//                     - SECTION 2 -                       //
//         Actions to be performed on FILES ONLY           //
//-----------------    Begin Editable    ------------------//

 
$entry['size'] = filesize($path);
  if (
strstr(pathinfo($path,PATHINFO_BASENAME),'log')) {
    if (!
$entry['handle'] = fopen($path,r)) $entry['handle'] = "FAIL";
  }
 
//-----------------     End Editable     ------------------//
             
break;
            } else {
//---------------------------------------------------------//
//                     - SECTION 3 -                       //
//       Actions to be performed on DIRECTORIES ONLY       //
//-----------------    Begin Editable    ------------------//

//-----------------     End Editable     ------------------//
             
break;
            } while (
FALSE);
           
$list[] = $entry;
          }
        }
      }
     
closedir($handle);
      return
$list;
    } else return
FALSE;
  }
   
 
$result = process_dir('C:/webserver/Apache2/httpdocs/processdir',TRUE);

// Output each opened file and then close
 
foreach ($result as $file) {
    if (
is_resource($file['handle'])) {
        echo
"\n\nFILE (" . $file['dirpath'].'/'.$file['filename'] . "):\n\n" . fread($file['handle'], filesize($file['dirpath'].'/'.$file['filename']));
       
fclose($file['handle']);
    }
  }

Here's a handy function you can use to list the files in the directory you specify, their type (dir or file) and whether they are hidden.
You could modify it to do other things too.

<?php
function listDirs($where){
echo
"<table border=\"1\"><tr><td><b>Name</b></td><td><b>Type</b></td>";
echo
"<td><b>Invisible (Hidden)?</b></td></tr>";
   
$itemHandler=opendir($where);
   
$i=0;
    while((
$item=readdir($itemHandler)) !== false){
        if(
substr($item, 0, 1)!="."){
            if(
is_dir($item)){
                echo
"<tr><td>$item</td><td>Directory</td><td>No</td></tr>";
            }else{
                echo
"<tr><td>$item</td><td>File</td><td>No</td></tr>";
            }
           
$i++;
        }else{
            if(
is_dir($item)){
                echo
"<tr><td>$item</td><td>Directory</td><td>Yes</td></tr>";
            }else{
                echo
"<tr><td>$item</td><td>File</td><td>Yes</td></tr>";
            }
           
$i++;
        }
       }
echo
"</table>";
}
?>
Then call it like this.
<?php
listDirs
(DIR);
?>
Example:
<?php
listDirs
("/tests/directorylisting");
?>

You get a table like this.

Name    Type    Invisible (Hidden)?
.    Directory    Yes
..    Directory    Yes
.DS_Store    File    Yes
.localized    File    Yes
index.php    File    No
OOOLS    Directory    No
QwerpWiki.php    File    No

Thought I would include what I wrote to get a random image from a directory.

<?php
$image_dir
= 'images';
$count = 0;
if (
$handle = opendir($image_dir)) {
   
$retval = array();
    while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if ((
$file <> ".") && ($file <> "..")) {
       
$retval[$count] = $file;
       
$count = $count + 1;
            }
    }

   
closedir($handle);
}
shuffle($retval);
$current_image = $retval[0];
?>

I haven't tested this yet, but it seems like it'll do just fine if you need files of a certain extension:

<?php
$dh
= opendir($options['inputDir']);
$files = array();
while ((
$filename = readdir($dh)) !== false)
{
    if (
substr($filename, strrpos($filename, '.')) == $options['inputExt'])
    {
       
$files[] = $filename;
    }
}
closedir($dh);
?>

Warning when using readdir() on certain versions of CentOS on NFS-mounted directories:

This is not a bug with PHP's readdir, but a bug with certain versions of CentOS's readdir implementation.  According to Post #6213 in the CentOS Bugs forum, when using CentOS kernel versions 2.6.18-348 through 2.6.18-348.3.1, invoking readdir on an NFS-mounted directory may not return all the entries.  Since PHP's readdir() uses this library, the issue is manifest in PHP as well.

According to the post, upgrading to version 2.6.18-348.4.1.el5 should solve the issue, though I haven't tried it.

glob() does NOT seem to suffer from this same vulnerability.

Here is an updated version of preg_find() [which has been linked from the glob() man page for years] - this function should provide most of what you want back from reading files, directories, different sorting methods, recursion, and perhaps most powerful of all the ability to pattern match with a PCRE regex.

You can get preg_find here: http://www.pgregg.com/projects/php/preg_find/preg_find.php.txt
or if you prefer colourful .phps format: http://www.pgregg.com/projects/php/preg_find/preg_find.phps
or scoll down to the end of this note.

I wrote several examples on how to use it on my blog at: http://www.pgregg.com/forums/viewtopic.php?tid=73

simple glob() type replacement:
$files = preg_find('/./', $dir);

recursive?
$files = preg_find('/./', $dir, PREG_FIND_RECURSIVE);

pattern match? find all .php files:
$files = preg_find('/\.php$/D', $dir, PREG_FIND_RECURSIVE);

sorted alphabetically?
$files = preg_find('/\.php$/D', $dir, PREG_FIND_RECURSIVE|PREG_FIND_SORTKEYS);

sorted in by filesize, in descending order?
$files = preg_find('/./', $dir,
  PREG_FIND_RECURSIVE|PREG_FIND_RETURNASSOC |PREG_FIND_SORTFILESIZE|PREG_FIND_SORTDESC);
$files=array_keys($files);

sorted by date modified?
$files = preg_find('/./', $dir,
  PREG_FIND_RECURSIVE|PREG_FIND_RETURNASSOC |PREG_FIND_SORTMODIFIED);
$files=array_keys($files);

Ok, the PHP note says my note is too long, so please click on one of the above links to get it.

this simple function will index the directories and sub-directories of a given dir

<?php
function get_dirs($dir){
    global
$dirs;
    if (!isset(
$dirs)){$dirs = '';}
    if(
substr($dir,-1) !== '\\'){$dir .= '\\';}
    if (
$handle = opendir($dir)){
        while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))){
            if (
filetype($dir.$file) === 'dir' && $file != "." && $file != ".."){
               
clearstatcache();
               
$dirs .= $file . "\n";
               
get_dirs($dir . $file);
            }
        }
       
closedir($handle);
    }
    return
$dirs;
}

A simple directory browser... that handles the windows charset in filenames (it should work for every iso-8859-1 characters).
<?php
$basepath
= realpath("./pub/");  // Root directory
$path = realpath($basepath.$_GET["path"]);  // Requested  path
$relativepath = "./".substr_replace( $path, "", 0, strlen( $basepath ) );
if(
"/" == substr( $relativepath, -1 )) {  // Remove the trailing slash
 
$relativepath = substr( $relativepath, 0, -1 );
}

$dh = opendir( $path );
  while(
false !== ($file = readdir( $dh ))) {
   if(
"." == $file) {continue;}
  
// converts the filename to utf8
  
$file_utf8 = iconv( "iso-8859-1", "utf-8", $file );
  
// encode the path ('path' part: already utf8; 'filename' part: still iso-8859-1)
  
$link = str_replace( "%2F", "/", rawurlencode( "{$relativepath}/" )) . rawurlencode( utf8_decode( "{$file_utf8}" ));
   if(
is_dir( "{$path}/{$file}" )) {
    echo
"<a href=\"?path={$link}&amp;\">{$file_utf8}</a><br/>"
  
} else {
    echo
"<a href=\"{$link}&amp;\">{$file_utf8}</a><br/>"
  
}
  }
}

Handy little function that returns the number of files (not directories) that exists under a directory.
Choose if you want the function to recurse through sub-directories with the second parameter -
the default mode (false) is just to count the files directly under the supplied path.

<?php

 
/**
   * Return the number of files that resides under a directory.
   *
   * @return integer
   * @param    string (required)   The directory you want to start in
   * @param    boolean (optional)  Recursive counting. Default to FALSE.
   * @param    integer (optional)  Initial value of file count
   */ 

 
function num_files($dir, $recursive=false, $counter=0) {
    static
$counter;
    if(
is_dir($dir)) {
      if(
$dh = opendir($dir)) {
        while((
$file = readdir($dh)) !== false) {
          if(
$file != "." && $file != "..") {
             
$counter = (is_dir($dir."/".$file)) ? num_files($dir."/".$file, $recursive, $counter) : $counter+1;
          }
        }
       
closedir($dh);
      }
    }
    return
$counter;
  }

 
// Usage:
 
$nfiles = num_files("/home/kchr", true); // count all files that resides under /home/kchr, including subdirs
 
$nfiles = num_files("/tmp"); // count the files directly under /tmp

This is a nice quick full dir read - sorry for my bad english ;)

<?php
function ReadDirs($dir,$em){
    if (
$handle = opendir($dir)) {
    while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if (
$file != "." && $file != ".." && $file != "Thumb.db") {
            if(
is_dir($dir.$file)){
                echo
$em."&raquo; ".$file.'<br>';
               
ReadDirs($dir.$file."/",$em."&nbsp;&nbsp;");
            }
        }
    }
   
closedir($handle);
    }
}

Here's an easy way to output the contents as a list of download links.

<?php
$count
= 0;
if (
$handle = opendir('.')) {
    while (
false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
        if (
$file != "." && $file != "..") {$count++;
            print(
"<a href=\"".$file."\">".$file."</a><br />\n");
        }
    }
echo
'<br /><br /><a href="..">Return</a>';
   
closedir($handle);
}
?>

and simply use $count to list the overall number of files.

Yet another view files by extension

/* NOTE:
*  /a-d = do not include directories
*  /b   = show files in bare mode ( no dates or filesize )
*/

<?php
$dir
= '.\\img\\';    // reminder: escape your slashes
$filetype = "*.png";
$filelist = shell_exec( "dir {$dir}{$filetype} /a-d /b" );
$file_arr = explode( "\n", $filelist );
array_pop( $file_arr ); // last line is always blank
print_r( $file_arr );

It should work, but it'll be better to read section 13.1.3 Cache-control Mechanisms of RFC 2616 available at http://rfc.net/rfc2616.html before you start with confusing proxies on the way from you and the client.

Reading it is the best way to learn how proxies work, what should you do to modify cache-related headers of your documents and what you should never do again. :-)

And of course not reading RFCs is the best way to never learn how internet works and the best way to behave like Microsoft corp.

Have a nice day!

Please note that readdir() doesn't mean in alphabetical order everytime while it sorts in directory order which means "ls -U" in linux
