technogod is on a distinguished road

I am trying to find a way to dynamically generate a page with a list of files from a specific directory on the server.

I am going to have .pdf files located on the server and put them in different directories based on the date. I need a way to generate a page based on the files in that directory.

It will be similar to having directory browsing enabled when there's no index.html file in the target directory. The server will generate a page based on the files in that directory. I need for the page to be a bit more configurable than the one generated by the server.

I need to try to do this without any Server Side scripting if possible (I know, this goes against what Client Side is all about) because I'm required to run this on a platform that is not a Unix or WinTel platform. I could install Perl or Java on the server, but if I can keep from doing this, I'd like to be able to. (The platform is OpenVMS and Apache for OpenVMS.)

Problem is I can't find any references in any JavaScript or HTML commands to let me look at the contents of another directory and generate a page on the fly.

I don't expect anyone to write the script for me, just point me in the direction of a command in JavaScript or HTML that will help me in my quest.

Can anyone help?

Sorry can't be done via client side scripting. Server side scripting is really your only choice. closing this thread and ask you to please repost in server side forum.
