#This is a very simple dynamic nav bar.

	/*this will grap only directories*/
	if (!strcmp(filetype($file), "dir"))
	{
		/* this is a list of directory not to list. 
		 * seperate by space, and a space before and after.
		 * so 'bobsimages' does not exclude 'bob'
		 * a period at the begining will also exclude a directory.
		 * this shouldn't be hard to modified to have excluded directories in a file..

		if(stristr(" log apache icons cgi-bin .. . ", " ".$file." ") || substr($file, 0, 1) == ".")
			continue;
		/* what should the link text say?*/

		/*pop the link out!*/
		echo "<tr><td align=\"center\"><b><a class=\"nav\" href=\"".$file."\">-".$name."-</a></b></td></tr>";
