Re: Odd result from readdir()

Thank you to both Yang and Peter; the problem is, as you suggested, in the line:

	while ($filename = (readdir($dh) !== false))

and it now works correctly.  I knew I was having a case of the stupids but couldn't find it.

Also, thank you Jeffery.  I was aware of scandir() and this was sort of a random choice but when it
didn't work it refocused my mind onto the question of "why not" instead of a workaround.  Surprising
how easily we can fall down the wrong rabbit hole!

Thanks again fellows for the prompt replies.
