Local link display help needed please

Using an internal sales program we use has the ability to setup links in
html to either img or txt files, that would then display in the built-in

How can I write a universal code to display the contents of a local folder,
so users could click on the item in the folder to access each?  It's very
confusing to state in a comprehensive way when I can't show anyone exactly
what I'm working with, but hopefully someone can guide me :)

As an example, this works to display an individual image chosen but will
only work for the one contact, since it's his image, in his folder, with
this particular name:

<A href="file://q:&lt;&lt;&amp;company&gt;&gt;\Baler\Al-jon200-1W.jpg"><IMG
alt="" hspace=0 src="Q:\&lt;&lt;&amp;company&gt;&gt;\Al-jon 200
Baler\Al-jon200-1W.jpg" align=baseline border=5></A>

The company name is pulled from the current contact record shown in the
sales program - the rest of the path is something that will change from one
contact to the next, so my only option is to display a list of the folder
contents per contact. I want to be able to use this same link on every
record no matter what their available documents are for a universal view.
So while I can't pull in the actual images, I could at least pull in a list
of available images...

I tried to use the above example but cutting off the path after the company
reference and \ but it won't display the folder contents doing that... :(
Maybe it's just not possible but I thought I'd ask the link gurus!!

Should be easy to to in PHP or Perl.  But I don't know of any existing
scripts which would do just what you're looking for.
