Directory Indexing

Directory indexing is a web server function that lists all of the files within a requested directory if the normal base file (index.html) is not present. The configured options on the people.tamu.edu server are:

FancyIndexing
This includes the name, revision date, size and an optional description.

IconsAreLinks
This makes the icon representing the file a link and not just an associated picture.

ScanHTMLTitles
For HTML files, it shows the "<TITLE>" as the description to the right of the file.

HeaderName
The filename is added to the beginning before the directory listing. This file will not be shown in the listing, but will have its contents displayed before the index.

ReadmeName
The filename is added to the end as text output after the directory listing. This file will not be shown in the listing, but will have its contents displayed before the index.
