After reading a lot more I spent some time thinking through everything that you guys had said. I have started working on my PHP scripts and recoding them so that they produce a more friendly url internally like this :-
the actual code that the script requires look like this
I understand that I need to create an entry in the htaccess that will capture these pretty URLs and deliver them as the actual script requires but I am unsure as to what that code should be. Could you give me an example of the code, note that the number of urls after the emualtor/ could be as many as 6 e.g. www.example.com/emulators/atari/800/xl/tapes/bin/etc/
Also you explained that all the existing external links that are coming in expecting www.example.com/emulators/atari/800/xl/tapes/bin/etc/ need to be captured and then delivered to the pretty URLs as well.
How exactly to I achieve both from within the same htaccess ? Or how to I capture the URL requests when they are from ourside the site.
