Spring rolls - filo pastry or proper spring roll wrappers?

Have just bought some filo pastry to make spring rolls with, as per a recipe. But I've just read about spring roll wrappers - what are they, are they just filo pastry anyway, cut into the right shape, or is it something else? I wanted the authentic (well, authentic from a takeaway, that is!) taste - I have eaten spring rolls loads of times but for the life of me I can't think if they're made of filo pastry or something else!

go to your local Oriental store and buy spring roll wrappers
filo will do but you sound pretty fussy

Filo pastry is, I think, different - although not that much as it is often used as a substitute.

If you're really keen, I have a recipe to make them, somewhere. I've never done it myself, but will dig the recipe out for you if you want?

and that, Tinkjon, is the difference between a poster who has a splitting headache, PMT and a 4 year old blowing a party blower in her left ear and a reasonable and helpful one.

I'm off to lie down in a dark room

Suzy, I'm fussy because I ask how something is made? [baffled emoticon]

BIWI, thanks for your offer of a recipe - I'll just use the one I have here though - I wondered if the recipe might be wrong when it said filo, but it sounds as if it will do fine. Thanks very much for your help!
