PHP Question

Column issue with table data arrangement

I am using readdir to snag file names from multiple directories. I was wondering if there is a way to arrange the data so that each time it starts a new directory it makes a new column i.e.




The coding that I have so far is:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<table border="1">
<?php
if ($handle = opendir('Users/')) {
while (false !== ($entry = readdir($handle))) {
if ($entry != "." && $entry != "..") {


echo '<th>';
echo "$entry\n";
echo '</th>';
}
}
}
?>

<?php

$folders = @scandir('Users');
foreach($folders as $item){
if ((substr($item, 0, 1) == '.') || (preg_match("/\.php$/", $item)))
continue;

if (is_dir("Users/$item")){
$target_folders = @scandir("Users/$item/uploaded/");
foreach($target_folders as $target_item){
if ((!preg_match("/^[.]/",$target_item)) || (!is_dir("Users/$item/uploaded/$target_item")));
if ((substr($target_item, 0, 1) == '.'))
continue;
echo '<tr>';
echo '<td>';
echo $target_item;
echo '</td>';
echo '</tr>';
}
}
}
?>
</table>
</body>
</html>





and basically what I want it to do is this:

---| user1 | user2 | user3 |
---| file1a | file2a | file3a |
---| file1b | file2b | file3b |
---| file1c | file2c | file3c |
---| file1d | ^ | file3d |
---| file1e | | | ^ |
---| ^ | end | | |
---| | | dir2 | end |
---| end | #start | dir3 |
---| dir1 | col3 | etc. |
---| #start | | |
---| col2 | | |


if this is possible that would be great; as far as displaying the user names across the top I have that part down already. I just need to know if the columns part can be done and if so how to do it.

Answer

Achieved with the following code:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>

<?php
echo '<table class="table"><tr>';
$folders = @scandir('Users');  
    foreach($folders as $item):
     if ((substr($item, 0, 1) == '.') || (preg_match("/\.php$/", $item)))
                continue;
    ?>
    <td align="top">
          <table width="220" border="1" valign="top">
               <tr><th width="210" valign="top"><?php echo $item;?></th></tr>
              <?php
               if (is_dir("Users/$item"))
            $target_folders = @scandir("Users/$item/uploaded/");
                foreach($target_folders as $target_item){

                if ((!preg_match("/^[.]/",$target_item)) || (!is_dir("Users/$item/uploaded/$target_item"))){
                if ((substr($target_item, 0, 1) == '.'))
                   continue;     

                   ?><tr><td><?php echo $target_item ;?></td></tr><?php

                }
                }

                   ?>
          </table>
</td>
    <?php
endforeach;

echo '</tr></table>';
?>


<style type="text/css">

    td {
vertical-align: top;
}
