PHP Question

PHP get file listing including sub directories

I am trying to retrieve all images in a directory, including all subdirectories. I am currently using

$images = glob("{images/portfolio/*.jpg,images/portfolio/*/*.jpg,images/portfolio/*/*/*.jpg,images/portfolio/*/*/*/*.jpg}",GLOB_BRACE);


This works, however the results are:

images/portfolio/1.jpg
images/portfolio/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory2/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory2/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/subdirectory1/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/subdirectory1/2.jpg


I want it to do a whole directory branch at a time so the results are:

images/portfolio/1.jpg
images/portfolio/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/subdirectory1/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory1/subdirectory1/2.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory2/1.jpg
images/portfolio/subdirectory2/2.jpg


Greatly appreciate any help, cheers!

P.S It would also be great if I could just get all subdirectories under portfolio without having to specifically state each directory with a wild card.

Answer

from glob example

if ( ! function_exists('glob_recursive'))
{
    // Does not support flag GLOB_BRACE        
   function glob_recursive($pattern, $flags = 0)
   {
     $files = glob($pattern, $flags);
     foreach (glob(dirname($pattern).'/*', GLOB_ONLYDIR|GLOB_NOSORT) as $dir)
     {
       $files = array_merge($files, glob_recursive($dir.'/'.basename($pattern), $flags));
     }
     return $files;
   }
}
