<?php
$str = file_get_contents("a.php");
        preg_match('%<meta name=\"keywords\" content=\"([^"]*)"%i',$str,$matchArray);
        $namesArray = explode(",",$matchArray[1]);
        $file = fopen($namesArray[0].$namesArray[1].$namesArray[3].".txt","w+");
        fwrite($file,$str);
        fclose($file);
?>

Use the glob function:

<?php

$filesInDirectory = glob("*");
foreach($filesInDirectory as $filename)
{
   echo $filename;
   // all your per-file logic goes here
}

?>

glob("*.php") returns only files ending in .php
glob("a*") returns all files starting with "a"
