A little help..

8 posts in this topic

Okay this is what I'm trying to do.

So i got a bunch of folders in a hard drive and in different map's i have a .txt file.

So i want a program that remove all those .txt files in every map.

My coding is not good.. i mostly do copy and pasting.. ye i'm a little ashamed about that..

what i have made so far.

#Include <File.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>
$FileList=_FileListToArray("G:\test", "*", 2)
_ArrayDisplay($FileList,"$FileList") # see what maps it found

# Ye i know there is a big problem below.
# I should have some thing like $FileList[0] in it..
FileDelete("G:\test\"$FileList&"*.txt")

Thanks if you taking the time to help me.

OmenSWE,

No need to feel stupid - we all started at the same point! :shifty:

This should do the trick: :P

#Include <File.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>

$FileList=_FileListToArray("G:\test", "*", 2)
_ArrayDisplay($FileList,"$FileList") ; see what maps it found

; Now loop through the found folders
For $i = 1 To $FileList[0]
    ; And delete the *.txt file within them
    FileDelete("G:\test\" & $FileList[$i] & "\*.txt")
Next

Please ask if you have any questions on the code. :x

OmenSWE,

First, when you reply please use the "Add Reply" button at the top and bottom of the page rather then the "Reply" button in the post itself. That way you do not get the contents of the previous post quoted in your reply and the whole thread becomes easier to read. :P

make it say how many files its going to remove?

You already have the answer - how do you find out how many folders you have to check in your loop? :x

Run

_FileListToArray again to count how many *.txt files in each folder.

OmenSWE,

If you want help, then you need to properly formulate questions. :P

What do you want to find then? :x

So why not give it a try as the logic is the same. If your code doesn't work after your attempt, then post it.
