list of files in tree to array?

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a function similar to _FileListToArray that will find all files in a specified tree rather than a single folder. For example

file1

file2

folder1\file3

folder1\file4

folder2\file5

The snipet of code I posted in this thread should do the trick for you

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]

That will help you perform the search

but I am NOT the author of it, I'm not sure who is
