_FileListToArray help!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,
I'm new to AutoIT and need some help.
I wish to write a script that will create an array and store a list specific file extensions of files in a specific directory.
The following achieves this, somewhat (taken directly from the _FileListToArray help example);

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


Func FindSPFs()
    ; List all the SPF files in the ShadowProtect directory using the default parameters.
    Local $aFileList = _FileListToArray("F:\ShadowProtect\", "*.SPF")
    If @error = 1 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Path was invalid.")
    If @error = 4 Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "No file(s) were found.")
    ; Display the results returned by _FileListToArray.
    _ArrayDisplay($aFileList, "$aFileList")
 EndFunc   ;==>FindSPFs

 MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "")

The above creates a nice list of the files I wish to work with but what I'd like to do is add to the array and be able to query the specific data stored in cells.

I wish to add both File Size and Creation Date in separate columns for each file listed, along side the file name.

I am then going to do file comparisons and delete files according to conditions set elsewhere.

Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks

redim, and add the data

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
$sFolder = "c:\test3"
Local Enum $iArray_file, $iArray_size, $iArray_created, $iArray_ubound
$a = _FileListToArray($sFolder,"*",1)
Local $a2[UBound($a)][$iArray_ubound]
$a2[0][0] = $a[0]
For $i = 1 To UBound($a) - 1
    $a2[$i][$iArray_file] = $a[$i]
    $a2[$i][$iArray_size] = FileGetSize($sFolder & "\" & $a[$i])
    $a2[$i][$iArray_created] = StringRegExpReplace(FileGetTime($sFolder & "\" & $a[$i],1,1),"(\d{4})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})(\d{2})","$2/$3/$1 $4:$5:$6")
$a = $a2
$a2 = ""

Take a look at the Beta _FileListToArrayRec I have posted here - that allows you to do it all at once. The 4th example is the one you need to examine. ;)
