Thread: scanDir() and Special Characters

    scanDir() and Special Characters


    I am using scanDir() to generate a XML with the directory content. It is done, and I was very happy until I figured that the special characters like ... are not displayed correctly in XML.

    This is my code:

    PHP Code:

    // will scan for privates dir
    $files scandir("private/");

    $totalFiles count($files);


    //starting XML
    echo "<?xml version='1.0'?>"."\n";
    "<!-- ## WE HAVE ".$totalFiles." DIR ## -->"."\n";
    // filling the info
    foreach($files as $key => $value){ 
    // verify if gallery is private
    if (file_exists("private/".$value."/_info/_privado_sim")) {
            } else {
    // verify if gallery is active
    if (file_exists("private/".$value."/_info/_activo_sim")) {
            } else {
    // catch the gallery name
    $nome scandir("private/".$value."/_info/");

    // ending XML
    echo "</lista>"."\n";
    and this is the link: so everybody can see the outputs.

    Any idea on how to fix this?

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    Outputs properly for me.

    Don't PM me your CSS, xHTML, JS or PHP questions. I will not reply to ANY IE6 questions.

    I've just updated the XML headers to <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> and everything works fine now. Thanks for the attention. This thing of special characters always make my head go around.
