    hello all

    i'm having problems trying to find information on how to write an asp
    script that lists the files in a directoy

    what i am looking to do is just list the 5 most recent files and list
    them in descending order (newest) first

    can anyone help me out here with a link, or some basic instructions,
    i've found plenty of scripts that list files, but they don't explain
    how its accomplished, and to me that's more important than simply
    dumping a script on the server and using it

    thanks
