Processing all files in a directory

5 posts in this topic

I just got this and I need a way to loop through all the RTF files in a directory, open them in WordPad, save them and then exit.

:ph34r:

I have found looping and I got the script to work with one specific file. Have been banging my head searching for a way to process all the files in a directory.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hope this helps :ph34r:

; Shows the filenames of all files in the current directory, note that "." and ".." are returned.

$search = FileFindFirstFile("*.*") 

; Check if the search was successful

If $search = -1 Then

    MsgBox(0, "Error", "No files/directories matched the search pattern")

    Exit

EndIf

While 1

    $file = FileFindNextFile($search)

    If @error Then ExitLoop

   

    MsgBox(4096, "File:", $file)

WEnd

; Close the search handle

FileClose($search)

I was gonna fix this for the "." and ".." not to show, but since goto is now called "evil" how can I do this ?

While 1
:Tester
    $file = FileFindNextFile($search)
    If $file = "." Then goto Tester
    If $file = ".." Then goto Tester

@ Toppy

Why not something like ...

While 1
   $file = FileFindNextFile($search)
   If $file <> "." AND $file <> ".." Then  ; <> = Not Equal
      If @error Then ExitLoop
      MsgBox(4096, "File:", $file)
   EndIf
WEnd

Have not tested this but should put you in the right direction.
