PHP: List files in directory, exclude backups


I'm writing a PHP script which is to (amongst others) iterate a directory and list the files contained within it. However, currently all files are listed, including backups (those ending with "~") and working files (starting and ending with "#"). Is there an easy way to exclude these files, or do I have to test for file endings when deciding to display the file or not?

The function fnmatch() helps:
PHP Code:
<?php

    $dir 
'.';
    
    
$dh opendir($dir) or die("Cannot open dir $dir");
    while ((
$entry readdir($dh))) {
        if (
is_file($entry) && !fnmatch('*~'$entry) && !fnmatch('#*#'$entry)) {
                echo 
$entry ."<br />";
            }
    }
    
closedir($dh);

?>
