Hi: I have a MySQL database that stores, for each record, the address of a file available for download. Using PHP, it's quite easy to have a search utility that returns a hyperlink to the download file for each record that matches the search.
But there's a twist! I need to give the user the option to click on a single link that will download ALL of the files that correspond to the matching records from the search if he so desires. Whether I use PHP to create an archive (Zip?) on the fly, or whether it would just be a succession of individual file downloads doesn't really matter. But my client doesn't want the user to have to click on each and every link if he chooses to download all of the files. Obviously I can't archive them ahead of time, because the collection of files would be dependent upon the search criteria. Any ideas?
