Read file names in directory and compare to table
Posted on 2013-01-24
In my application a user may upload a series of audio files and I need to ensure before they are put to use all of them are actually in the directory and are named appropriately. The user may have additional files in the directory which doesn't matter. I just need to ensure the required ones are there. Also the user may upload one of 2 different formats ie: .wav or .mp3
So if I had a table with the required names in my db ie: 'audio_table'
In that table I have the following names of audio files:
Any idea of the code required to check each filename in the directory and compare it to the filenames in the table, see if there is a match and see that the file extension in the directory is either .mp3 or .wav
Kind of like:
foreach audio file in the db table, read directory file names, find if match, check if .wav or .mp3
if all there return true
if missing return missing filenames array so I can echo back missing files
Thanks for any help.
