Find your Files

in PHP added by goodphptutorials, on 22/4/2010 file handling framework oo programming php5 symfony

The best practices for finding files with PHP has evolved a lot in a the last few years. Back in 2004, one of the very first thing I did with PHP was porting the File::Find::Rule Perl module to PHP. File::Find::Rule is a great way to describe the files and directories you want to work with. I used the opendir, readdir, and closedir native PHP functions, and it did the job quite well. The PHP class was named sfFinder, and it can still be found in all symfony versions. Even if the class is bundled with symfony, I know that a few people use it for all kind of stuff, not necessarily related to symfony.
