Art HTML Listing creates filtered, sorted, fully customizable directory listings,
indexes, menus, maps and trees in HTML, DHTML, XML, text and CSV formats, as
well as the list of MP3 and image files.
It is designed for webmasters, developers and
system administrators and for those users who need to make / print folder listings.
The main difference from DHTML menu making programs is that you don't need to manually
enter lots of menu items - the program scans files and makes menus automatically.

With DHTML menu creators you need to enter all of your menu items into the program. If
you need to link hundreds or thousands of HTML files, then AHL will save you a lot of time.
Program can also automatically extract information from files, such as HTML title,
EXIF time or image resolution, and put it into the links.
If we compare Art HTML Listing with Apache mod_autoindex, then
the benefits of Art HTML Listing are the following:
- Works for any web server, any hosting plan, any server
- Can create and display off-line contents.
- Trees and DHTML menu support. Apache can not create DHTML menus or trees.
- Time and size filters.
- Separate file and directory filters.
- Both include and exclude filters. Apache supports only exclude filters.
