LXer: Dynamic Content - Detailed Article Listings
Published at LXer:

The creation of an automated article listing on the central column of the OpenSourceToday's home page would have begun by running the called php source specified in the action attribute of the input form. The php scripts would have begun by creating the text of the article summary that contained the publication date, the linked title, the author's name and the capsule summary. The entire string described would be enclosed within a div tag pair when written into a new text file. The next task would have been creating a backup copy of the original listing, then appending its content into the new file that contained only the newest article summary. Finally this completed new listing would be copied over the original. That is the process I describe here, in detail.
