Sorry if there has been any replies to this but my mailserver lost 36 
messages yesterday.
Please repost any replies please.

Can someone interpret this code for me - on my old server it correctly
displayed the newest image added to
a webcam directory, on my new server it is displaying the biggest file?
Anyone know why?

<head><meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5"></head> <pre>
$latest_num = 0;

if ($handle = opendir('.')) {
      while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
       if (preg_match("/^test(\d+)/", $file, $matches)) {
           if ($matches[1] > $latest_num) {
               $biggest     = $matches[1];
               $latest_file = $file;
           // echo " $file\n";


echo "Latest file: $latest_file\n";

echo "<img src='$latest_file'>";
