Content of folder and output

Hi All
I have a folder that contains for example

picture1.jpg   picture1.pdf
picture2.jpg   picture2.pdf
picture3.jpg   picture3.pdf
etc                etc

is it possible to scan the folder and produce a two column table  - the picture1.jpg displayed in the first cell and a link to the picture1.pdf in the second cell and continuing to insert a row for each additional picture found in the folder. Any help and code to get me started would be greatly appriciated.

Many Thanks in advanced

Michael

Not the most efficient way but, It'd do the job.

I've put the code in as follows and I am getting the following error message

Parse error: parse error, expecting `','' or `';'' in pics/photo.php on line 22
which is the line
foreach ($files as $file){
I'm just beginning to learn php so I'm a bit stumped with this one

sorted - there was a ; missing from the first echo.
Just one more thing before I close this question. I've added

while( ($filename = readdir($dir_h)) !== false ) if ($filename !='.' && $filename != '..' && $filename != 'photo.php' && $filename != 'try.php')

to the While to look for the  .  &  ..  and two .php files that are in the folder. How can I use a wildcard to look for any .php file just like u would in dos or windows *.php

Again Many thanks

Michael
