Something like this:

<?php 
$folder    = '.';
$files = scandir($folder);

foreach ($files as $file):
	printf("<p><a href='%s' target='_blank'>%s</p>",$file, $file);
endforeach;
?>

Open in new window

No points for this, but... You may want to filter the list of files a little bit, in case your process is not the owner.
