Hi
Our little society wants to give members the option of receiving a DVD of magazine back issues. There are less than 100 members and less than 100 back issue pdfs.
They take up 2 DVDs or a single 8GB memory stick.
Can anyone help me out with a simple autorun local webpage that can be stored on the DVD, or memory stick, automatically list the file names and allow the user to click on the filename to view the pdf? Either code wise or a pointer to a free app or source code.
Kind of like the CDs we got on the front of computer hobby magazines when I was young (and dinosaurs ruled the earth as my granddaughter is fond of saying). I have some (10 years ago and not since) experience with authoring in HTML and PHP - but clearly PHP is wrong in this instance.

Any help greatly appreciated.

You could let PHP on your own computer generate HTML code, then manually copy that HTML to the DVD as static HTML. But it's probably no more work doing it all manually.

Well, Windows is capable of creating a directory listing. Then it's just Find & Replace.

It may differ on different version of Windows, but on Win10 this works to get just the file names without path, size and whatnot. Bring up a command prompt in the directory with the PDFs and....

CODE
dir /b /a
