how to rename file at run time
i have a php form , in which i have some controls. On a form there is a "File Field" control. When user select any file from browse button, the file will be uploaded successfully.
But i need some modifications.
I want that when user upload a new file, the php code rename the file and add some random string with the file name.
How can i do this, i spend many time on this module, but i am unable to do it.
Please help in this regard.

I assume you are using copy() or move_uploaded_file() to move the temporary file (from $_FILES['fieldname']['tmp_name'] to somewhere else ?
if so simply rename there
$u=uniqid(mktime()); //thats a big filename ;) best revise
copy( $_FILES['fieldname']['tmp_name'] , '/home/blah/'.$u.$_FILES['fieldname']['name']);
MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)
