As you can see above, the format is pretty simple. There's a box for a search term (yes, right now it only accepts one term), a results box that tells you how many results that there were that matched your results, and the "Results" box that shows the actual results. The arrow on the side allows you to scroll through the results if there are more than five (it only shows five at a time in the box). When you put a term in and hit the Submit button, the Flash movie sends a message to the PHP script with the term. The PHP script then does the work of looking through the file that it's told to, and returns the result to the Flash movie.

First off, lets talk about the PHP script. Now, for those of you not into the whole programming thing, this might be a little difficult to understand, but I know that there are loads more that know what they re doing, so I'll try to be brief about it. First thought, the script:


$foo=file("stuff.txt");
$number=count($foo);
$a=0;
$count=0;
$nothing="";
for($i=0;$i<=$number;$i++){
	$blah=strstr($foo[$i],$input);
	if($blah){
		$next=str_replace(" ","+",$foo[$i]);
		$next=chop($next);
		$nothing.="blah".$a."=".$next."&";
		$a=$a+1;
		$count=$count+1;
	}
}
printf($nothing."count=".$count);
