    can anyone tell me what's going on here?
    i've made a game in flash
    http://www.flash-i.com/supersheep/plat2.html

    it has three variables:
    my_score
    my_name
    my_mail

    >>>> play the game - then click on next stage. (at the moment - this takes you to the 'scores' page ('cause it's still in development of course

    at this page a table of results should show up but this is all you see:

    $my_name: $my_score"; echo "
    "; } ?>



    ------------------------
    i'm using two bits of php supplied by a friend:

    1st is:

    <?php
    $num_to_show = "15";
    $file = "log.dat";
    $list = file($file);
    $list[] = "$my_score|$my_name|$email";
    natcasesort($list);
    $res = array_reverse($list);
    $fp = fopen($file, "w+");
    for($x=0; $x <= $num_to_show; $x++){
    fputs($fp, "$res[$x]\r\n");
    }
    fclose($fp);
    ?>

    which is stored in the same directory as the flash game and is named log.dat and contains nothing on the page (no html or anything) except the above code.




    2nd is:

    <?php
    $file = "log.dat";
    $list = file($file);
    natcasesort($list);
    $res = array_reverse($list);
    echo "<ol><b>High Scores</b>";
    foreach($res as $temp){
    $check = explode("|", $temp);
    $score = trim($temp[0]);
    $name = ucwords(trim($temp[1]));
    $email = trim($temp[2]);
    echo "<li><b><a href=\"mailto:$my_email\">$my_name</a>: $my_score</b></li>";
    echo "</ol>";
    }
    ?>

    which is in a normal html file, also stored in same directory as flash game.

    any ideas what's going wrong -
    is it even getting the data from the flash game at all...


    please let me know php gurus, and i'll be eternally greatfull

    kind regards,
    jeev

    why don't your files have .php extensions?

    If you're just keeping a bit of data in the log.dat file, the extension doesn't matter. The only pages that MUST have .php extensions are files with PHP code inside that needs to be processed.
