readdir() is the solution for you...

use readdir() to read the list of files and within while loop do the reading of each file and do whatever your scenario requires

Like this:

<?php

$filesarray = array();

if ($handle = opendir('.')) {
    while (false !== ($entry = readdir($handle))) {
        if ($entry != "." && $entry != ".." && is_file($entry)) {
            //echo "$entry<br />";
            $filesarray[] = $entry;
        }
    }
    closedir($handle);
}

print_r($filesarray);
?>

Open in new window
