PHP Scripts (run on webserver)
These scripts have run on PHP 4.1.2, and PHP 4.4.1. I don't have access to PHP 3.x, so it is not known if they will work on versions below PHP 4.1.2. If you try them and they work (or not) on earlier versions of PHP, please send me a message at webmaster[at]saratoga-weather.org and let me know the results.
Display .TXT NOAA style forecasts PHP
I needed to safely display a series of .TXT files (NOAA style climate reports) using the overall style of the website. My WeatherLink software produces regular reports (NOAAMO.TXT, NOAAPRMO.TXT, NOAAYR.TXT, NOAAPRYR.TXT) as part of the 5-minute update. I've also produced reports and named them NOAAyyyy.TXT for yearly reports and NOAAyyyy-mm.TXT for monthly reports. These I've uploaded (monthly) to a sub-directory on the website /NOAA-reports.
Version 1.04 (01-Dec-2007) adds a new feature for WeatherLink users to create new NOAAyyyy-mm.TXT and NOAAyyyy.TXT files from the respective NOAAPRMO.TXT and NOAAPRYR.TXT files when the month/year rolls over. It will copy the appropriate file to the $NOAAdir and name it so you have no monthly maintenance to do (except to view the NOAA reports page on the first of each month).
The NOAA-reports.php will read the sub-directory, sort the filenames produce a menu of available names, and display the file requested. It automatically uses NOAAMO.TXT and NOAAYR.TXT (WeatherLink version) for the current monthly and current yearly files. The nice thing about the script is it strictly controls what can be displayed (existing files only, no directory browsing). The following is a live display of WeatherLink produced NOAA style reports for this station.
<?php $doInclude = true; require("NOAA-reports-test.php"); ?>
