my problem is tht i hv a form which uploads resumes for a folder called uploads.it also changes the name and stores it so tht 2 resemes dont get over written if de have the same name. i now need to retrieve resumes automatically given a search criteria. for example if the admin wants resumes of all candidates who score abv 75%,by enterin this value de can get all such resumes.
can any1 tell mehow to do it

If the results are stored in an array...

function sort_by_percent ($ar, $pe) {
$rad = array();
foreach ($ar as res) {
if ($res[0] => $pe) {
$rad[] = $res;
return $rad;
$array = array(
array("score","name","position", "etc"),
array("score","name","position", "etc"),
array("score","name","position", "etc")
//Call it like this:
sort_by_percent ($array, "0.75");
// returns an array where scores are higher than the decimal.

It would be best to store information about the files in a database here. Then you could just do
select from files where score > 0.75;
