have you thought of shelling out to the OS and running ls -t (or dir /o:d
for Win32) and then parsing the output?

Subject: [thelist] PHP directory sort by date

Trying to scan a directory and its subdirs for all files and grab them into
array ordered by time and date <phew!!>

Can anybody shed light on the best approach??

Ive considered two options but both seem difficult to implement:
1) using the dir() class and praying it spits out results in date order
2) using readdir() and then making a date sort function for the array I
But god only knows how to write a date sort function...
