    Its kind of simple, my guess its that it depends on PHP version, por PHP 4 just remove the creation of the class thats NEW
    $mydir = new dir('/path/to/mydir');

    $mydir = dir('/path/to/mydir');

    BTW, the if(is_dir($mydir->path.$file)) part includes the .. and . "directories"... so if, like me, you just wish to display a list of sub-directories, you'll need to ignore those two entries:

    if(is_dir($mydir->path.$file) && !strstr($file,".")) {

    Great article BTW :-)

      Careful. Using strstr here will exclude all directories with a '.' character *anywhere* in its name.

      So while it will exclude "." and "..", it will also exclude "images.web" or "photos.icons" or whatever.

      Use preg_match instead:

      if(is_dir($path) && !preg_match("#^\.+#", $file))

    It was a typo; it has since been fixed. (There is no need for the "new" keyword.)
