A

To present an input field on your Web page to allow users to specify a local file to upload, you need to use the <INPUT TYPE="FILE" ...> tag inside a <FORM ...> tag. The <INPUT TYPE="FILE" ...> will be displayed as a text input field followed by a button called "Browse...". Users can either enter the full path name of a local file, or click Browse button to go through a dialog box to select a file interactively. The following PHP code shows you a good example of the file upload tag:

<?php
  print("<html><form>\n");
  print("<input type=file>\n");
  print("<input type=submit>\n");
  print("</form></html>\n");
?>

If you copy this script to PHP file and test it on your Web server, you should see a file upload field.
