Converting file folder contents into hyperlinks

P: n/a
I'm looking for some software that would allow me to point to a folder
in Windows Explorer, and have it output an html file with hyperlinks
to all of the files within that folder and all of the sub-folders. I
have many folders with several dozen files and sub-folders and would
like to avoid hand-coding all of the hyperlinks.

Does anyone know if such software exists?

Thanks in advance.

And this is for the www? What is the server software? I think that is
the relevant question.

You may be able to configure the server to do this for you. In Apache,
it's quite easy. See httpd.conf for documentation.

The html file would be posted on a local intranet and put on CDs. I
don't have access to the server these files reside on, so anything
server side is pretty much out of the question. I was just looking for
a standard program that will browse the folder's contents and output
an html file with hyperlinks to the various files.

Any http server will generates a html with hyperlinks when browsing a
folder, for exemple http://localhost/MyFolder/
So you can open the directory via a browser, save the html page you see, and
then open it in a text editor and make a search&replace on the beginning of
the URL (replace http://... by file:...)
