PHP

Hi everyone, I hope this is an easy one – I would simply like to combine a bunch of PHP functions into one script.  Here is the architecture:

1) I send a PHP script a series of variables that have a value.  If these variables have a value, PHP fires a script:

varA=1
varB=2
varC=3
varD=4
…and so on (a total of 30 variables in sequential order)

2) If varA = ‘something’ then do the following:
<?
$file = fopen("./Folder/" . "NewFile1", "w");
fwrite($file,"$varA");
fclose($file);
?>

If varB = ‘somehting’ then do the following:
<?
$file = fopen("./Folder/" . "NewFile2", "w");
fwrite($file,"$varB");
fclose($file);
?>

This is repeated all the way down to the 30th variable.

Hope this is easy.

1. Simply form an array of the variables.
2. Obtain the length of the array.
3. Run a for loop on the array of variables.
4. Test that the current variable has a value.
5. Perform file creation function.
6. Continue looping until complete.

$varA = 1;
$varB = 2;
$varC = 3;

$arrayName = array ($varA, $varB, $varC);
$arrayLength = count($arrayName);

for ($i = 0; $i < $arrayLength; $i++)
{
     if($arrayName[$i] != '')
     {
      $file = fopen("Folder/NewFile$arrayName[$i]", "w");
      fwrite($file, "$arrayName[$i]");
      fclose($file);
     }
}
?>
