[WD&D] Digest for - 1 Message in 1 Topic

    If I understand your requirements correctly:
    1) The end user browse and select which class they are interested in.
    (Method doesn't matter)
    2) The web browser will request all the URLs for this class.
    3) The web browser will request each URL individually and download the
    paper to a local folder.
    Couple of things ..
    1) Requirement 1 will be handled through AJAX calls. I don't know if
    the browser can download a file recieved via AJAX, so Requirement 3
    might have to be a standard URL call .. window.location="download.php";
    2) The group of papers should be handled as one download through a ZIP
    file. Look into CURL calls through PHP. Also look into how PHP can
    create a ZIP file dynamically.
    3) Look at how PHP creates a HTTP header for download. This will
    trigger the Web Browser into Download Mode.
    Hope this helps,
