PHP Scan Directory For Key Words or String

Last Modified: 2013-12-13
My boss had me create a resume database for our company using PHP and MS SQL.  I have finished it using a file on the server for the actual uploaded docs and the target in the database along with all other information entered on a form according to the transaction number.  I now need the ability to scan all the docs in the directory for keywords and dump all the hits into an array.  Can anyone help me or point me to an example script that I can modify?
