PHP Script Help - Making links to files Clickable

Ok so I wrote a php script that outputs the below to users on a webpage.

Code:
# Download: /home/content/d/i/v/divine1234/eBookDownloads/ScalpRemedy_jablaa12734.zip

the php code that outputs the above is:

Code:
echo ("<li>Download:            $download_link</li>\n");

The thing is, I dont want users have to copy and paste the output of the above command before they can download the file.

is there anyway I can assign it a name and make it Clickable?

like:

Code:
filename = "/home/content/d/i/v/divine1234/eBookDownloads/ScalpRemedy_jablaa12734.zip";

ClickHere = "$filename";

echo ("<li>Download:            ClickHere</li>\n");

Make the zip file available under the website document root and then just create a hyperlink...
Code:
echo "<A HREF='/eBookDownloads/ScalpRemedy_jablaa12734.zip'>Click Here</A>";
