Post #1 of 1
I am currently putting together an intranet site on a server with Apache. the things of it is that i got this coop position but i do not know wnything about unix/linux and perl. For teh past week i have been reading books and articles on the web and actually wrote my very first ever CGI script the other day.
The form lets a user choose a document and then goes and retrieves the document from a hash i created and provides a link to that document. This isn't too bad because there are only 20 documents to choose from BUT my problem arises now. I have to do the same thing with a directory of 99 files. As you can imagine i really do not want to sit and waste space creating a hash for 99 files. Is there a way i can search a directory for a specific file and do that same thing i did with the first one by providing a direct link to it or better yet, can i just search through and automatically fire the document to the browser?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
p.s. sorry about the long message
