or:
$file = file_get_contents('test.php');
echo substr_count($file, '<ul>');


or, start Googling for:
"I want a php script to tell me how many occurences of a string there
are in a file"
but leave out the unimportant parts of the question like:
" I want" and "to tell me"

so, Google for:
"php script how many occurences of a string there are in a file"
the first occurance is the RTFM of the *substr_count* function.

Naturally, you want to know how many <ul> there are in the generated
HTML, of course. That would be the "page." <ul> in a script can/could be
generated within a loop, with just one <ul> actually existing in the
script. (something else from dynamicdrive, I'll wager)

Drop your HTML output into any competent text editor and use the Find
function, usually Control-F. Sometimes, even the browser can tell you!!

I'm not looking to see how many ul's are on a page for a personal
referencce. But rather, as a need for the rest of the script to know how
many items must be in an array.
As the basis for building a tree style menu.

While you may consider dynamicdrive a joke, at least they help.
I had a question about a script and they answered with the proper answer
without any bullshit like you give.

www.1littleworld.net/sample

All done with script provided by dynamicdrive and the lightbox script was
from elsewhere. With a modification made by a guy so that the script would
work as I wanted.

Before you go mouthing off about the errors, those are in the javascript,
not the html.

There are two <ul> on your /sample page.

Yup. two of 'em.

Have you ever tried to write a script on your own?

Are you inviting an error report? Some of them would go away if you
would use HTML 4.01 instead of XHTML (which is a dead no-future doctype).
There are also several errors in your CSS.

Why are you asking about JavaScripts in a PHP group?

The specs are too vague to provide a precise answer but the starting
point is the DOMDocument class:

Richard,

I fail to see why you respond so unfriendly ("bullshit like you give")
to Beauregard T. Shagnasty.
Maybe you had some problems with him before, but the answer he gave gave
you in this thread is correct and helpful.

I don't imagine I am the police in here, but I just want to warn you
that behaving aggressive will only result in your disadvantage: people
won't be inclined to help.
Just saying...

Regards,
Erwin Moller

richard is a moron. Search this group. He frequently pops up with some
inane question and gets personal both when people try to help or tell
him (politely) to do his homework (and/or bugger off).

That's typical of a response from richard. Expect nothing less.
