place all files in a directory in array.

I have the following function it prints out all my files in each directory. How can I place the files in one array.
Every time the directory changes the counter $i is reset to zero so the previous array is written over.
I want to be able to place each variable in its own array.
so that I can insert it into a database.

Any suggestions.

function util_file_dir_stats ($path)
      if ($dir=@opendir($path))
            {//OUTER IF
            while (($dir_files=readdir($dir))!== false)
                  {//START WHILE
                  if (is_dir($path.$dir_files) AND $dir_files!= "." AND $dir_files!= "..")
                //Places all Directory names in $recurse_dir
                if ($dir_files == strtolower($dir_files))
                        $recurse_dir[$i] = util_file_dir_stats($path.$dir_files);

                  elseif($dir_files!= "." AND $dir_files!= "..")
                        {//IF 1
                        if ((preg_match("/.php/",$dir_files,$array) ))
                              $recurse_dir[$i] = $dir_files;
                                                                                $win_file_dir[$i]  = "$path/$recurse_dir[$i]";
                              $win_file_dir[$i]  =  str_replace('//','/',$win_file_dir[$i]);
                              $file_mod_time[$i] = filemtime($win_file_dir[$i]);
                              print "$file_mod_time[$i] $win_file_dir[$i] ".'<BR>';
                              }//END IF 1
                  }//END WHILE          
            }//END OUTER IF
