Builder.com.au:
How do I...recursively scan directories with PHP's DirectoryIterators?
June 18, 2008 @ 07:55:21

Builder.com.au has a new tutorial posted today talking about the use if Iterators (from PHP's SPL) to recurse down through directories on your local drive.

One of PHP5's most interesting new features is the addition of Iterators, a collection of ready-made interfaces designed to help in navigating and processing hierarchical data structures. These Iterators significantly reduce the amount of code required to process an XML document tree or a file collection.

They give three examples - two basic ones showing a simple use of the DirectoryIterator and RecursiveDirectoryIterator and another slightly more complex one showing how to get information from the recursive iteration as it goes down.
