<head>
<title>Titel der Seite</title>
</head>
<body>
<img alt="Logo" src="Logo.png"/>
<br>
<br>
<b>Material:</b>
<br>
<br>
<ul>
<?php
//get all image files with a .pdf extension.
$pdfs = glob("*.pdf");
//print each file name
foreach($pdfs as $pdf)
{
echo "<li><a href=$pdf>$pdf</a></li>";
//echo "<br>";
}
?>
</ul>
</body>
</html>
