traversing directory structures


Recommended Posts

Absolute newbie at AutoIt .... still reading docs ... will it be possible to start at the top of a directory structure, read the whole tree and convert into xml, then search the xml for keywords? TIA,

First look at _FileListToArray() <-helpfile or depending on your needs,

Stir in a bit of logic as you loop through the array.

I dont know anything about xml so this sample might seem silly, but will give you an idead as to where to get started.

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
$aArray = _FileListToArray("C:\my\directory\location")
Local $sString = ""
For $i = 1 To $aArray[0]
    $sString &= "<File>" & $aArray[$i] & "</File>" & @CRLF
