i hav been wrking with php for a while. i know how to upload files to the server using php.

well in one of my college sites there are files which are sequential in order (like a1.jpeg,a2.jpeg,a3.jpeg...)

i thought of using the copy command with source file as the www.xyz.com/a_.html and destination as my local hard disk. i kept this in a loop with the file name being incremented.

but i found that copy couldnt open the file on the server.

i really wanna know how to do this because there are over 1000 files i need to download.

can anybody know what code i should use to download stuff using php?

also can anyone tell me a nice place to learn about sessions?

You probably need to do open both files and then copy.

$src = fopen('http://www.example.com/filename.txt', 'r');
$dest = fopen('http://www.yoursite.com/copy_of_file.txt', 'w');

copy($src, $dest);
