Hi,

I have script below that gets a file, makes an array, then puts parts of the array into an html table.

I am trying to make it so that the table has two columns.  I am not sure how to write it so that $num increments after each foreach statement.  I think I have the rest of it right, just have to work out how to count and recount after each loop so the <TR> and </TR> print out in the right places.

Thank you,

Chris


<TABLE WIDTH="90%" BORDER="0" CELLPADDING="3">
<?
$newsarray = file ("/home/acc/example.com/newsfeed/$filename.txt");
$num = count ($newsarray);

foreach ($newsarray as $hdln) {
$news = explode ("\t",$hdln);
$url =  ($news[0]);
$title = ($news[1]);
$source = ($news[2]);
$date = ($news[7]);

if($num%2 == 0) {
PRINT "<TR>\n";
}

PRINT "<TD><B><FONT SIZE=\"-1\"><A HREF=\"javascript:story('$url')\"
ONMOUSEOVER=\"self.status='news'; return true;\"
ONMOUSEOUT=\"self.status='';\">$title</A></FONT></B><BR>
<FONT COLOR=\"#934900\" SIZE=\"-1\">$source&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$date</FONT></TD>";

if($num%2 == 0) {
PRINT "</TR>\n";
}
}
?>
</TABLE>

$newsarray = file ("/home/acc/example.com/newsfeed/$filename.txt");
$num = 0;

foreach ($newsarray as $hdln) {

$url =  ($news[0]);
$title = ($news[1]);
$source = ($news[2]);
$date = ($news[7]);

if($num%2 == 0) {
PRINT "<TR>\n";
}

PRINT "<TD><B><FONT SIZE=\"-1\"><A HREF=\"javascript:story('$url')\"

$num = $num + 1;

if($num%2 == 0) {
