The Apache module mod_autoindex generates "directory indexes" that show users a crude hyperlinked list of the files and directories inside a directory (when there is no index.html or other DirectoryIndex file).
I have a directory on an Apache webserver where I want to provide an automatic directory listing, including the full filenames, sorted most-recently-modified-first, with file sizes displayed, using simple and attractive presentation. I cannot use mod_autoindex or other Apache features.
I am therefore looking for a simple script that does much the same thing as mod_autoindex. In other words I want a script I can put in a directory that outputs an HTML document to STDOUT that contains a hyperlinked list of the files in the directory.
The script should present its output in a simple & attractive way (non-technical people will be using it), consist of one file that I can edit if required, and preferably be OS-independent (so I can use it again later). Extra features would be great, but ease of install is all-important (though I am happy to tweak the code if I have to).
My preference is for a perl script (i.e. an index.pl file), but PHP would be acceptable (index.php). Those are the only DirectoryIndex options on the server.
