ftp_rawlist

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

ftp_rawlistReturns a detailed list of files in the given directory

Description

array ftp_rawlist ( resource $ftp_stream , string $directory [, bool $recursive = false ] )

ftp_rawlist() executes the FTP LIST command, and returns the result as an array.

Parameters

ftp_stream

The link identifier of the FTP connection.

directory

The directory path. May include arguments for the LIST command.

recursive

If set to TRUE, the issued command will be LIST -R.

Return Values

Returns an array where each element corresponds to one line of text.

The output is not parsed in any way. The system type identifier returned by ftp_systype() can be used to determine how the results should be interpreted.

Examples

Example #1 ftp_rawlist() example

<?php

// set up basic connection
$conn_id ftp_connect($ftp_server);

// login with username and password
$login_result ftp_login($conn_id$ftp_user_name$ftp_user_pass);

// get the file list for /
$buff ftp_rawlist($conn_id'/');

// close the connection
ftp_close($conn_id);

// output the buffer
var_dump($buff);
?>

The above example will output something similar to:

array(3) {
  [0]=>
  string(65) "drwxr-x---   3 vincent  vincent      4096 Jul 12 12:16 public_ftp"
  [1]=>
  string(66) "drwxr-x---  15 vincent  vincent      4096 Nov  3 21:31 public_html"
  [2]=>
  string(73) "lrwxrwxrwx   1 vincent  vincent        11 Jul 12 12:16 www -> public_html"
}
