is there a way to create a slideshow using all the pictures in a particular directory rather than specifying every picture name, etc. Like if u wanted to make a slideshow from the pictures in
http://www.moffesto.com/pictures/

or do u have to specify every lil file name. ext. etc. It would take a load off if i could do this .

i don't know if thats possible, but another way to save time could be to name all the images in numerical order 1,2,3, etc. and then use a loop in your code to load the image one and then add 1 to the variable so that when it loops back through the code it loads image 2....

Yep. Pretty simple. If you are using Perl that is. I don't know whether the other scripting languages are capable of it. All you need to do with Perl is just open the directory and read the contents from it. I can post examples of this if you want.

My BBS uses a JavaScript to read the contents of a directory for smiles, and avantars

Code:
my $directory = "/location/of/images";
my $file;
opendir(IMAGES, $directory) or die "Can't open $directory:\n";
while (defined($file = readdir IMAGES)) {
    print "<img src=" . $directory . $file . ">\n";
}
closedir(IMAGES);
That's how I'd do it.

Nope. You can't insert Perl directly into HTML unless you are running ASP or SSI. You should create a seperate file containing that and then call it. If someone mentioned they know a way to do it using Javascript, I'd recommend doing it that way unless you really wanted to be creative about it. Then learn how I'd do it.

.penis if you own the webserver and can set that up. Otherwise call it .cgi and put it in a cgi-bin directory.

Try this, I dunno if its exactlly what your looking for, but its a cool slide show...

Code:
<script language=JavaScript type=text/javascript>
<!--
// JavaScript
function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
  var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;
}

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
}

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
  var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
   if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
}

function MM_callJS(jsStr) { //v2.0
  return eval(jsStr)
}

function MM_showHideLayers() { //v3.0
  var i,p,v,obj,args=MM_showHideLayers.arguments;
  for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) if ((obj=MM_findObj(args[i]))!=null) { v=args[i+2];
