Description: This function can be used as a simple search. As it is now, you can use a file extension (ex. ".php") to find all the files in the root directory and below that match the extension. It returns a list of file names in the format "/new_paths_if_any/file_name".

/* File extension to search for, if left blank then will show all files of all types, example equivelant to "*.php" */
$check_extension = ".php";
